'CastleMiner Z' reaches over 900 thousand downloads, poised to become fastest selling Xbox Live indie game

CastleMiner Z is nearing the one millionth download mark.

CastleMiner Z, a Minecraft-like, co-op survival shooter developed by DigitalDNA Games, is poised to become the fastest selling Xbox Live indie game with over 900 thousand downloads, the studio announced on its official Twitter account.

While full confirmation is still required before DigitalDNA can officially confirm the game's status as the fastest selling indie title on the service, the developer told Joystiq it looks probable.

"Based on the positions in the daily best selling lists it may very well be the best selling XBLIG of all time, but I won't feel fully comfortable saying that until we have reached the top of the xbox.com best selling list, which I project should happen when we round out 1M units sales in the next 4-6 weeks, becoming the first XBLIG to do so."

CastleMiner Z has topped Major Nelson's XBLIG list since its launch in November.
