Interview: Counter-Strike Co-Creator Minh's Tactical Intervention

Like most big successes, Counter-Strike turned out to be a much bigger phenomenon than Minh "Gooseman" Le could have ever expected.

While in college, Le co-created the humble Half-Life mod Counter-Strike with Jess Cliffe and released the title under Sierra Entertainment in 1999. The initial release spawned a series that has sold millions of units for Valve Software (officially around 10 million at the end of 2008), which bought the series in 2000. It’s still easy to find active Counter-Strike servers.

But for Le, who worked for Valve for a period of time, Counter-Strike is the past. For the past six years, he has been working on Tactical Intervention, a new team-based FPS from Le and FIX Korea. It's based on Valve’s Source engine and is expected for a 2010 launch. (PC, Tactical Intervention)
