About Triple B Games

Triple B Games was set up in 2007 in Dundee by industry veteran Jonathan “Fritz” Ackerley (Harry Potter’s Quidditch World Cup, Shadowman, F1 2002, Actua Soccer 2).

The company’s aim is to show that great games can be delivered without any of the traditional ‘AAA’ baggage of vast teams & overblown production values. Taking a punk approach to games, developing fast and using free tools wherever possible, Triple B have now launched Fitba on the Xbox 360 Community Games channel. A response to the bland, formulaic approach of current football games Fitba is real football, football with soul, a kick about with your mates rather than the vapid commercialism of the Champions League.
