This amazing achievement came in the final moments as the last runner of the marathon faced the final boss of SNES classic, Chrono Trigger. As he battled the boss, more and more donations came flooding in. Over $50,000 in less than 50 minutes, climaxing right as he defeated Lavos with a shout of victory. Then everyone in the room silently looked toward the announcer as he officially announced $1,000,000 raised through AGDQ 2014!
At last check, the total is $1,006,921, and donations are still coming in.
You can find archives of the streams on Twitch.tv and on Youtube later.
