“FortressCraft” becomes fastest selling Live Indie title

You know that game where you use blocks to build your world? Minecraft, right? While Minecraft will be hitting version 1.5 sometime this week, that’s not the game we’re discussing. Projector Games’ FortressCraft, available on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel, has sold 16,000 copies on the first day, and became the fastest selling indie title within the first week. Additionally, FortressCraft has a great conversion rate of demo-to-paid players of 70%.

FortressCraft, though, is mired in controversy. The game does allow Avatars to run around the virtual world, and offers most of the blocks at the beginning, without mining or collecting. Still, many people see it as a Minecraft clone that only has the Xbox 360 to help it reach a console crowd.
