From that stage on every friday came with a new addition: new items, new slimes…  Alpha stage: the survival multiplayer mode was created, now playing against all kind of creatures with your friends was possible!  Beta stage: all kinds of stuff were added in that stage: the sandstone, lower light, wolves that could be trained with bones, electric storms, intense raining…  Versions came with improvements and additions…1.6, 1.7, 1.8…until reaching the final version of the game, 1.0.0.
