  • Article: Counter-Strike Co-Creator Jess Cliffe Arrested for Sexual Exploitation of a Child (Update: Valve Suspends Cliffe)

    Jess CliffeJess Cliffe was arrested this morning (February 1, 2018) at 1:17AM (PT) for "sexual exploitation of a child." For those few of you who do not know, Jess Cliffe is a co-creator of Counter-Strike. He and Minh Le (Gooseman) created the wildly popular game back in 2000. It started as a modification for Half-Life and since became a number of very popular stand-alone products.

    While the police did not provide any additional details, we do know that Cliffe does not have a criminal history. He was booked at 1:17AM into King County Jail. A bail hearing is scheduled for the afternoon of Friday, February 2.

    As of this writing, Cliffe is still under the employ of Valve and is also known as the "voice" of Counter-Strike, having voiced the lines said in the original game while the characters performed various actions. Cliffe, largely by way of rizzuh, was also instrumental in the creation of CS-Nation.
