At B3 we believe in games of all shapes and sizes, we believe that interactive media is the sole destination for the future of escapism, we believe that eventually digital worlds will transcend what we now know, and —most importantly— we want to be there when it does.
Video games are created by a whole range of people, for a whole range of reasons. If you’re one of the few who believe that when we talk about games we should also talk about those reasons, and the idea the game spun from… then, welcome home. If you can respect a game for the time that’s been spent on it, the idea behind it, and the effort that has gone into it -even if you are not the target audience- then you’re a perfect fit for B3.
We are looking for enthusiastic creators to populate the beautiful depths of B3. Whichever role(s) you undertake, we’re eager to give you a platform on which to showcase your work. Even if you haven’t had much experience we can lend a helping hand, hopefully making you feel more at ease.
At the moment the site is not running adverts (a choice we have made deliberately) and so it is not earning a penny; as such we cannot currently pay for articles. That said, review games are -of course- retained by the reviewers, and we intend to switch to a system where we can pay as soon as the site is large enough to support a friendly, alternative method of raising funds.
We don’t expect you to pull up roots to work with us. The current team is littered over the world and communicate mainly over the internet; after all this is an online age and an online platform. There’s almost always a member of the team around for a chat, or to give you some help with anything you’re stuck with.
This role is perfect for somebody looking to move into a journalistic, games industry, or writing-based career; opportunities to develop your creative writing, industry knowledge, and interview and conversational technique will be rife – should you so wish.
Our long-term goal is to make B3 a place where anybody interested in getting into games journalism can write for a time, receiving feedback and editorial advice which will aid their growth into the industry. In this way, we hope to generate a new wave of writers who may not have had the courage to take those first steps otherwise.
Interested? Then drop us an email at Dann@BigBossBattle.com with an example of your work.
If you wish to create something fresh then write up a review [800+ words] or a preview [600+ words] – Don’t worry about adding images – and we’ll get back to you ASAP. Alternately, if you are a video creator then why not contact us with links to your work and we can discuss how we can work out something that’s mutually beneficial for all parties?
We look forward to hearing from you.
