The folks behind Summer Games Done Quick, aka the popular video game speedrunning event, announced the schedule for 2018 festivities Monday. I’m sure they finished writing it in a record-setting time.

The event begins Sunday, June 24 at 12:30pm ET with games like Spyro the Dragon, 2016’s Doom, and Resident Evil 4 starting things off with a bang. June 25 sees plenty of retro titles like Ninja Gaiden, Ghosts N’ Goblins, and both the original Tomb Raider and 2015’s Rise of the Tomb Raider getting their moment in the streaming sun. 

Summer Games Done Quick 2018 goes all the way until the next Sunday (July 1) around midnight. Dozens of games will be featured, but some notable speedruns include Pokémon Yellow and Pokémon Red, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, Deus Ex, Cuphead, Halo 2, Castlevania, and my personal favorite: The Simpsons: Hit and Run.

This year’s games are being held in Bloomington, Minnesota and will raise money for the Doctors Without Borders charity that provides healthcare in regions that are often impoverished or conflict zones.

Livestreams for the games will be available on the Games Done Quick website and the Games Done Quick Twitch account. You can check out the full schedule here
