Blocks and more blocks. Construction is the concept on which Minecraft has been based from the beginning, a start as an independent video game that has ended in absolute success. Mojang, the studio responsible, is now part of Xbox Game Studios. All in all, the story of this production adds an interesting chapter thanks to a group of internet people, who have been searching for the alpha 1.1.1 of the title for ten years … and they have finally achieved it! This version was only available for a few hours before it was updated to 1.1.2.
When this version was released, it was not long before Mojang discovered a bug that caused players to encounter a gray screen. So it’s not surprising that the studio was in a hurry to develop a patch that would correct the bug. In fact, version 1.1.2 only it was online for about three hours and twenty-five minutes.

The process of recovering the alpha 1.1.1
Those responsible for this work, let’s call it archaeological, within the world of video games call themselves Omniarchive. They have been the ones who have found a working version of Minecraft alpha 1.1.1. This build was in possession of lunasorcery, which was contacted by the group after finding a tweet from him from 2010: “Ohhhhhh, a Minecraft update!”, he wrote in his day.
Luna herself has revealed why she still has that version in her possession. The truth is that he played the title on a laptop, which was replaced in 2011 by a new PC. However, he kept the laptop and its contents, so that it has been recovered. Months ago, a member of Omniarchive sent him a private message, although at first it was ignored. After someone else contacted her, she decided to search for that old build. He considered several options that failed, but then it occurred to him to review his external USB hard drives. There he discovered several .jar files (the Minecraft ones), different old buids. One of them turned out to be the long-awaited 1.1.1.
Minecraft is available on many current systems such as PC or consoles, as well as mobile devices.
