Over ten years after its release, a rare early version of Minecraft was thought to have disappeared. Minecraft Alpha 1.1.1 was released in September 2010 for the original Java Edition. It was only available for three hours. Gaming archivists have now found it again.
Over the years, there have been hundreds upon hundreds of Minecraft versions. minecraft servers Fans have meticulously collected and archived a lot of them to preserve. One version, Alpha 1.1.1, also known as Seecret Saturday was believed to be lost. It introduced fishing rods as well as infiltrating into Minecraft. However it was discovered to have a game-breaking bug which made the screen completely gray. Version 1.1.2 was released within hours.
