Ten Years Later, A Unique Version Of Minecraft Was Found


Over ten years since its release, a rare early version of Minecraft was thought to be lost. another blog was released in September of 2010 for the original Java Edition. It was only available for three hours. Gaming archive experts have discovered it.

Over the years there have been hundreds on hundreds of Minecraft versions. Fans have meticulously collected and archived a lot of them to ensure their preservation. One version called Alpha 1.1.1, also known as Seecret Saturday was thought to be lost. It introduced fishing rods as well as the ability to sneak into Minecraft. However, it was found to have a game-breaking bug which would make the screen completely gray. Version 1.1.2 was released within hours.

@lunasorcery, through Kotaku, told the whole story of its re-discovery on Twitter. As Luna says that Alpha 1.1.1 was a cult or even a holy grail of the Minecraft archiving Discord Omniarchive, and none of them expected to discover it.

Someone stumbled across one of Luna's old tweets, and inquired about it and she eventually discovered an old backup of minecraft.jar dated the same as Alpha 1.1.1's release date of September 18 in 2010. Luna examined the file and confirmed that it was Alpha 1.1.1, which she then published on Omniarchive and it exploded.

So I wrote in Omniarchive, and it would not be understatement to say that some people were noticing.

Just from the reactions from the reactions, the reality of just the magnitude of this is starts to set in. I literally begin shaking.
