After a week of 24-hour streaming, Summer Games Done Quick 2017 came to a close with a four-and-a-half-hour glitchless run of Earthbound. While late donations are still coming in, the current total is $1,776,475.79 USD across 30,065 separate donations from 22039 different people. This benefits Doctors Without Borders.
2017 has been a record breaking year for Games Done Quick events. The January show, which often outperforms its July counterpart, brought in $2.22 million USD when it seemed like ~$1.2 to $1.5 million is where we were going to settle at. While we didn’t eclipse that this week, it did beat the previous Summer event by over $500,000. Maybe we’re still in a growth period, and 2016 was just unusually low?
I guess we’ll find out on January 7th – 14th for Awesome Games Done Quick 2018.

It’s too bad SGDQ is such a cringefest the last few years, though. This year they banned a Twitch emote from DansGaming (a hugely popular streamer on Twitch who is gay) because of an emote of his that shows him wearing a wig.
