Minecraft-Inspired Title FortressCraft Becomes First Xbox LIVE Indie To Pass $1M In Sales

by on August 11, 2011

When XBL Indie title FortressCraft launched back in April 2011, many people wrote it off as nothing but a Minecraft clone. Regardless of any criticism, the sandbox building game from Projector Games has gone on to become the highest grossing Xbox LIVE Indie Game of all time, surpassing the one million dollar mark, as announced by the developer on the FortressCraft forum.

The actual total made in sales is $1,202,469 so far, with Projector Games selling over 400,000 copies in the process. Projector Games also boasts a heathy conversion rate of those that played the demo, which is currently sitting at 84%.

Not content to rest on its laurels, Projector Games is releasing an update to the game, which will include customisable blocks and server rankings, as explained by Projector’s ViraGunn on the forum.

“Just because we’ve hit this milestone does not mean we’re going to kick up our heels and be content. A massive update is on its way – further adding to the depth of the world of FortressCraft, including customizable blocks and server rankings amongst other things.”

FortressCraft is available now for Xbox 360.
