Aksys Games recently hosted a fundraiser for the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief effort, selling off its fresh stock of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward wristwatches and donating 100% of the proceeds to aid victims of the super storm that recently devastated the East Coast. Today the final earnings count came in.

So how’d Aksys do? Pretty damn well, I’d say, banking a grand total of $12,920.00, with all watches selling out within 24 hours of the fundraiser’s start date on November 14th. (Whew, good thing I didn’t waste any time ordering mine!)

At $20 a pop, that means they sold somewhere around 650 watches, if my math is correct. Kudos, Aksys!
