The Operative: No One Lives Forever (commonly shortened to No One Lives Forever, abbreviated NOLF or NOLF 1), is a video game developed by Monolith Productions and published by Fox Interactive. It was released on November 9, 2000.

Credits and CastEdit

This page lists the credits for the Windows versions of The Operative: No One Lives Forever (NOLF) – both the original version and the Game of the Year (GOTY) edition combined.

In order to compile this "ultimate" list, the following sources were used:

  • NOLF game manual
  • In-game closing credits in NOLF (v1.000 to v1.003)
  • In-game closing credits in NOLF GOTY
  • Readme file for NOLF v1.002
  • Readme file for NOLF GOTY
  • Official NOLF website
  • In-game closing credits in the NOLF tech demo, extracted with the use of NOLF Tools

These sources give quite a differing account of people involved in the production, even between the materials for the same release (e.g. the manual, the readme and the in-game credits for the initial release of the game). This page intends to provide the most complete and correct account of people who worked on NOLF and discrepancies between the various sources are noted.

In the readme file for the original game, nicknames for most of the testers and Quality Assurance employees were included. Where this was the case, the nickname is mentioned next to the person's name, between single quotation marks.

The official NOLF website includes a short credits page. The page is made up of two sections: "UNITY Operations Team" and "Additional Operations". In the first section, employees are mentioned, along with a humorous, fictional UNITY job title, that somewhat reflects their role in the creation of the game. The latter section lists other people, but without any job descriptions. These are also mentioned on this page, where applicable.




  • Various female characters (voiced by Kit Harris and Barbara Dirickson)
  • Various male characters (voiced by Ken Boynton, Scott Burns, Mark Dias, John Patrick Lowrie and Mike Madeoy)


  • Cate Archer (NOLF cover model) (portrayed by Mitzi Martin)
  • Game Director (Craig Hubbard)


  • On the main menu, Cate can be seen wearing sunglasses and holding a Shepherd Arms 9mm. In the actual game, however, Cate can only hold a weapon or a gadget, but not both.
