FortressCraft has become the first XBLIG to make over $1 million in sales. Launched back in April this year, the game bears an uncanny resemblance to PC hit Minecraft. Given the imminent release of an Xbox Live Arcade version of the real Minecraft later this year we can only speculate how long the success will continue. However with over 350,000 copies sold, developer ProjectorGames promises not to become complacent:
“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.”
The game received only a lukewarm reception from us when we reviewed it, but you can check it out for yourself on Xbox Marketplace for only 240 Microsoft Points. You can read the full press release by clicking the link below.
Is Minecraft coming to the Xbox Live? Not quite, but Projector Games looks to give players the next best thing this March. FortressCraft, like Minecraft, will be a sandbox building game that allows players to landscape their world to their heart’s content.The game will be released in chapters, the first of which will focus on creation of the gameplay world(s). The second chapter will introduce inventory, resources, crafting and other features. The first chapter will retail at for 80MSP and will feature multiplayer for up to 31 players. Color us interested.
