AGDQ’s Shovel Knight Speedrun Race Was Tense

Speedrunning charity event Awesome Games Done Quick is in full swing and already producing some amazing runs. Yesterday, a speedrun race between two Shovel Knight players stole the show.

Awesome Games Done Quick or AGDQ showcases some of the best speedrunners in a week long charity drive for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. In addition to solo runs, the event hosts races between players. This race between current Any% world record holder Smaugy and Munchakoopas is one of the best yet.

The race is notable for focusing largely on high technical skill and very few glitches. The runners are also joined by the JHobz, who gives wonderful commentary throughout the match.

It’s everything you could ever want from a speedrun race: Astounding boss fights, shortcuts and a few heartbreaking deaths. In the end, Smaugy won. He secured victory by a meagre six seconds.

Well done, runners. That definitely was awesome.


  • That’s crazy how close that was! I’ve only finished Shovel Knight once, but I suddenly feel like going to play it again. ^_^
