The Matthew Brown report

On the Internet, a name is a bit like being the highlander: In the end, there can only be one. One at the top of the search results for a name, of course. I am Matthew Brown. There are a lot of other people using my name. Well, I guess it is their name too. Who are these jokers and why does Google think they are the definitive Matthew Brown? You are reading, the Matthew Brown report.

Everyone believes they are the definitive them. Of course, they are. We are all the heroes of our own story. The trouble is, only one Matthew Brown can show up first in the search results for my name. I’d like that someone to be me.

Join me as I explore these other Matthew Browns and what Google has to say about them. In the end, there can only be one at the top of the search results. Which of us will it be? There’s only one way to find out.

Our first case: Matthew Brown the Steam developer.

Okay, I have to admit, this Matthew Brown has one of my dream jobs. I can’t fault him for living his best life making games. One you may have played is Hex Cells. A puzzle game. Three in fact. Three games with a whole load of praise.

The Matthew Brown that’s a game developer goes by the handle of “Ma77hew_Brown“. Smart move,substituting sevens for the the letter T. You can find him on Twitter.

I can see why game developer Matthew ranks so high in Google. He makes good games at a reasonable price.

This is what one reviewer had to say:

Not content with already having made the best puzzle game ever featuring the best puzzles ever, crazed genius creator Matthew Brown has just given the six-year-old trilogy a new coat of paint, tidied things up, and most importantly of all, stopped Hexcells Plus from artificially delaying how your clicks became part of the soundtrack.

Hexcells Trilogy 2.0,

Well played, Matthew. You win this round.
