The annual speedrunning charity marathon Awesome Games Done Quick is underway. The entire week-long marathon is being broadcast on Twitch.

The annual Awesome Games Done Quick speedrunning marathon is underway and has already raised more than $100,000 for charity.

The marathon sees a selection of talented gamers take on a range of games, new and old, with certain challenging objectives in mind. The marathon runs 24 hours-a-day for a week and is livestreamed so you can wonder at the skills on display.

Awesome Games Done Quick supports the Prevent Cancer Foundation and there are a number of donation incentives throughout the week, letting those who donate vote for which character is used, the challenge to be completed, and much more.

You can see the full schedule on the Games Done Quick website, so you can find out exactly when you need to tune in to catch your favourite game on stream. The event is being broadcast on Twitch.
