    Killer rabbits

    In the alpha, the team had wolves that chased rabbits across the map as part of its emergent gameplay system.

    In those early days, the rabbits would actually level up if they got into a fight with a wolf and managed to escape.

    The game was tweaked to disallow this, though Koster confesses that they left one monster rabbit in the world when the final game shipped.
