For something that just includes a pared down 'build' mode of a popular PC game, FortressCraft has notched (ouch) up some impressive sales.

Though indie channel games aren't exactly renowned for making their creator's fortunes overnight, Projector Games has outlined sales figures for Chapter 1: Creation. The 'game' has sold 60,000 units in just six days with a further 20,000 downloading the free time limited demo.

Projector games also outlined plans for FortressCraft's future. Episodic content is in development and will be sold as DLC, hopefully strapping in a bit more of the Minecraft-style stuff that's been missing from FortressCraft up till now.

Despite criticisms about the missing content and the general lack of polish, 60,000 is pretty impressive for an Xbox Indie Channel game nonetheless.

Let's hope that extra content isn't too far away.

FortressCraft scored a quite reasonable 4/5 in our review.
