FortressCraft fastest-selling XBL Indie, says developer photo



Unsurprisingly, the first chapter of FortressCraft has sold quite well. According to developer ProjectorGames, the title managed to reach 16,000 sales in its first day, making it the fastest-selling Xbox Live Indie game of all time.

There's still a lot of anger over the similarities between it, Minecraft, and earlier games in the genre, but people are clearly wanting that experience on Xbox 360 -- even if it isn't a particularly great one. FortressCraft serves its purpose. I have to wonder if future installments will be as successful, though.

I suppose the games do have Avatar support, so probably.
