About Us

Welcome to Big Boss Battle, or if you’d rather, B3.

B3 was launched back in May 2016 with the plan of building a place where games of all shapes and sizes could be celebrated. With over a decade of writing about games between the founders, and each in possession of a lifetime of gaming, they were confident they could achieve this goal. Soon others flocked to the banners.

Our goal is to cover a wide range of games, from big to small; our articles delivering both feedback and respect for the development process. We believe in being fair and respectful in our articles and we always aim to focus on the mechanics and ideas behind the game as much as the more visual and audible components.

We’re also dedicated to creating a place where we can train up and mentor those who would otherwise not be confident enough to start a career in the industry. Maybe you could join us on this journey.

We hope you enjoy your time at B3 — if you like talking about games then we’d love to get to know you.
