Cliff Bleszinski has been creating his own games since the age of 11. By the age of 17, he figured out how to make money from his hobby and hooked up with Tim Sweeney of Epic Games. Now 27 years old, Bleszinski has been professionally making games for 10 years, and his credits include the Jazz Jackrabbit and Unreal series. He is currently working with a team of 20 artists, programmers, and designers, on Epic's next generation game and technology as well as acting as a producer on Unreal 2 and Unreal Championship, both of which are hotly anticipated upcoming sister products in the Unreal Franchise.
