Speedrunning charity event Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) has announced the dates for its 2023 event.
In a tweet on the Games Done Quick account, the organisation announced that the event will take place from 8 to 15 January 2023. They also added that the event will be hosted online instead of as a physical event.
They cited continued concern for Covid-19 and the state of Florida’s “increased aggression towards LGBTQ+ individuals” for shifting their event online.
Games Done Quick also explained that the contract they signed with the Florida venue would be costly if broken by relocating to another venue. So moving the event online was the only reasonable option.
AGDQ 2023 will take place from 8 to 15 January, with all funds donated to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Volunteer signups and game submissions will open on 11 September.
