Epic’s raised $150,000 for Penny Arcade charity Child’s Play following it’s save or die Carmine campaign for Gears of War 3.

Gamers were allowed to buy virtual and real-life T-shirts to decide the fate of the final Carmine brother, Clayton, with proceeds going to the charity.

The campaign has been a overwhelming success, it seems.

As for if Carmine lives or not, you’ll have to play the game next April to find out.
