Summer Games Done Quick has already kicked off and the charity speedrun stream will be up 24/7 until 30 June 2019. We have compiled info on where and when to watch the speedrun-a-palooza if you want to catch your favourite games or runners.

Speedrunning fans can check out one of the biggest speedrunning events of the year on the official Games Done Quick Twitch channel that is not really hard to fight on the website since it tends to have the most viewers at any given moment. It is not an everyday occurrence that Tony Hawk's Underground 2 mops the floor with Fortnite and League of Legends when it comes to viewer counts .

You can only imagine the numbers will go up once the hard hitters like Metroid, Contra and Legend of Zelda entries start coming up. 

Metroid fans will have runs to look forward to on 24 and 25 June 2019 where they will be able to see Metroid, Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.

Contra series will have one entry fewer, with two titles in total - Contra and Contra III: The Alien Wars. Both runs will be done on 24 June 2019.

Zelda fans have four entries in total to look forward to, spanning across 24, 26 and 29 June 2019. There are five entries, if you count Legend of Zelda Randomizer race on 26 June 2019.

Not all highlights are inspired by games in question though, some feature a tiny bot that tends to roll out perfect performances. TASBot will once again go for the fastest 999,999 score in Tetris on Friday, 28 June 2019 which will supposedly take it 10 minutes to achieve.

The run will be followed by the bot's take on Mario Kart Wii where it will go through eight tracks in about the same time frame but the event may take a bit longer due to the setup time.

We didn't put the exact stream time on any of the runs but you can check them out on the official website's schedule . All the times shown will be localised per user for convenience.
