Lari Muuriaisniemi got started in level design with the original Doom. His early published work included maps for Action Quake 2, a mod Minh Le was involved with, and modifications for Duke Nukem 3D.
When Minh Le and Jess Cliffe came across a Half-Life map designed by Muuraisniemi called Hill, they decided to contact him in the hopes of getting him to design a map for their upcoming Counter-Strike mod. Assault was the result and it would be included in beta 1.1 of the mod. The map was a success and when Counter-Strike was released at retail, Valve Software bought the rights to the map and made it part of the retail product.
