Humble Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 Bundle Celebrates Speedrunning Charity

Humble Bundle has launched the Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 Bundle, which features a collection of games and services to get you started with speedrunning.

You can pay what they want for Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Volgarr the Viking. If you pay $6 or more you will also receive Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut, SpeedRunners, and a 30-day subscription to Twitch Turbo.

If you pay $10 or more, you'll also get Escape Goat 2 and a 3-month subscription to livestreaming software XSplit Premium. If you pay $30 or more, you'll also get AGDQ 2015's Bundle Merchandise Pack, which includes exclusive t-shirts, buttons and more designed by The Yetee.

As always, you can choose how your money is divided between the game developers, Humble Bundle and the charity.

Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ), a video game charity that raises money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation by speedrunning games, started today at 9 a.m., and will run continuously for 160-hours, until January 10.

For those unfamiliar, speedrunning is the process of playing through a game as quickly as possible. Speedruns are particularly fun and sometimes bewildering to watch because they require expert skill, lots of planning, and sometimes the use of tricks.

Some of the games to be played at the 2015 event include, Banjo-Kazooie, Commander Keen 4-6 and Dark Souls II. 2015 will also see the return of Awful Games Done Quick, with titles like William Shatner's TekWar and Sneak King.

Last year's AGDQ event raised more than $1 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
