If you love seeing video games played with speed, skill, and humor, speedrunning is for you. The concept of a speedrun is simple: players try to use every trick in the book (and some that were never in any book) to beat their favorite games in record times. If you've never seen The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time beaten in 18 minutes, or Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island completed in 2 hours, then you owe it to yourself to check out these performances!
AOD is proud to host some of the leading voices in speedrunning: Trihex, Romscout, Spikevegeta, and more of your favorite speedrunning personalities are here to discuss their craft, share stories from the Awesome Games Done Quick charity marathons, and show off their well-honed skills!
Romscout is one of the premier ambassadors of the speedrunning community, serving both as the charity events manager at Twitch and as the event director of Games Done Quick. He specializes in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but he's known for letting down his hair and playing such legendary games as Lifeline and Ninja Baseball Bat Man.
Trihex is one of the best showmen in the business, known for his slick Yoshi's Island tricks as well as his smooth Jet Set Radio stylings—not to mention his occasional flashes of the gun show.
The velvety voice of Spikevegeta is a staple of every Awesome Games Done Quick marathon. When he's not reading donations or providing couch commentary, he can be found practicing his many speedruns and his trash talk at the same time. From Kingdom Hearts to Rayman to Final Fantasy, his shows are not to be missed!
