Every Indie Game Being Run At Games Done Quick 2021

Updated: Nov 9



The organizers behind Games Done Quick, a seven-day marathon event that brings together various speedrunners from around the world to raise money for charity, have released a list announcing all of the games being run at their next event. Over the past ten years, the event has been a staple in the video game community. Millions tune in twice a year to watch some of their favorite games get beaten as quickly as possible, and to date, the event has raised over 25 million dollars for various charities. We’ve looked over the schedule and there’s a lot to get excited about, especially for the indie game enthusiast. Here is a list of every independent game being run at the event:


  • Alwa’s Legacy (Elden Pixels)

  • Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon 2 (Inti Creates)

  • BPM: Bullets Per Minute (Awe Interactive)

  • Braid (Number None)

  • Carrion (Phobia Game Studio)

  • Celeste (Matt Makes Games)

  • Cuphead (Studio MDHR)

  • Energy (Quasar Soft)

  • Epic Dumpster Bear 2: He Who Bears Wins (Log Games Limited)

  • Slowdrive (Onebraverobot)

  • Super Ledgehop: Double Laser (LAME Dimension)

  • Super Meat Boy (Team Meat)

  • Super Orb Bros. (OrangeExpo)

  • Freedom Planet (GalaxyTrail Games)

  • The Cowlitz Gamers’ 2nd Adventure (M-Tee)

  • The Messenger (Sabotage Studios)

  • Whiskey And The Lost Atlas (Blowfish Studios)



That’s a massive list full of great games, so I’m sure that you’d have a good time tuning in during any of these runs. But just in case you’re looking for suggestions, I always love a good Celeste speedrun, and this one’s the hardest levels of the game being done with a dance pad controller from Dance Dance Revolution, which sounds insane. Also sure to be insane is the I Wanna Be The Fan Game run. It’s a fan-made game for I Wanna Be The Guy, an ultra-hard indie platformer, and it takes the original game even farther and makes it extra punishing. Super Orb Bros. is another fan-made romhack, this time for Super Mario Bros. 3, which gives Mario brand new abilities like wall jumping and throws him into some devilishly hard levels. Finally, I’ll say that I’ve always loved Serious Sam speedruns, and this time we’re getting two of them, each being run by four players playing co-operatively.


Awesome Games Done Quick will be streamed live on Twitch from January 3rd to the 10th. You can see the whole list of games, including the non-indie ones, here
