The European Speedrun Assembly begun yesterday (July 21st) at 10am EDT with a two-player Dark Souls III All Bosses race. Like Games Done Quick, it is a week-long, 24-hour charity marathon on Twitch. They do not have GDQ levels of viewers and money raised, but they do have a sponsor that pledged to double donations up to $50,000 USD. Note that they have two streams, listed one after the other in the schedule, so be sure to look through both parts of the schedule (in case there’s a Stream 2 game that catches your eye).

They are currently sitting at $11,686 USD, which, I believe, is pre-match, so it should double to $23,372 USD. ESA Summer 2018 benefits Save the Children, which helps children affected by conflicts and natural disasters.

While this run has already ended, I was fascinated by the Co-Op GeoGuessr segment. One user is given a Google Streetview location from somewhere in the world, and the other has a Google Maps view of the world. The two then need to work together to find where in the world they are, by the one looking around Google Streetview and the other trying to piece the clues together.
