Grasshopper Manufacture has raised over $80,000 for Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief funds.

One way was through ab iOS App, Frog Minutes, which earned $20,000 – 100 percent of which went into the fund.

Some of the money also came from the firm’s ties with charity firm Play For Japan, and Akira Yamaoka even auctioned off his guitar and instrument gear to raise $10,000.

EA, the publisher behind the firm’s Shadows of the Damned, donated $50,000 to the Red Cross in Grasshopper’s name.
