Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward Watches are Back and Ready to Help!

Torrance, CA November 14, 2012 – The recent landfall of Hurricane Sandy left much of the eastern seaboard devastated. Thousands of people have been driven out of destroyed homes, and many are still without electricity, food, water, or other necessities. Help is needed, and as such we at Aksys Games would like to announce that we will be selling a limited number of VLR watches in our new web store, and donating all proceeds from the sale of said watches to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts fund.

Akibo Shieh, CEO of Aksys Games explains, “I’ve always felt that no matter what, it’s important to give back to the community wherever we can, especially during times such as these.  Whether it’s an individual or a small company like us, if we all work together we can make a difference.  We hope that our friends on the East Coast recover as quickly as possible.”

It is our sincerest hope that relief efforts reach and aid those affected by this disaster quickly.
