Hi,

About

Meet Matthew

I'm a recent Computer Science graduate of the University of Southampton who holds a keen interest in programming, especially web, app and game development.

I recently released my first mobile game, Experimental Gravity, on iOS. Experimental Gravity is a physics-based puzzle game that puts the player in control of gravity. I have completed several projects previously (some of which are described below), but this was my first experience of building a complete product and I thoroughly enjoyed taking it from an idea all the way to market. Whilst the majority of my time was spent developing the game using Unity and C#, this project allowed me to employ and experience a wide range of skills, including designing game art, producing app previews and trailers, and beta testing through Apple's TestFlight.

My other work includes my third year university project, Rocket League Analytics, which provides in-game analytics, match history, and statistics tracking to Rocket League players, all with only an image of the match scoreboard. This is the biggest web project I have undertaken and combines a frontend React app, including Redux and React Router, and backend Node.js server, which uses Google Cloud Vision API and Firebase Authentication amongst other technologies.

From my academic studies, I also have experience of programming in Java and Haskell.

In the future, I hope to pursue other areas, such as mobile app development (away from gaming and Unity). I also have a keen interest in entrepreneurship and would like to find an opportunity to combine these skills and interests in the near future.

Kop Stop

A project I first started in July 2015, Kop Stop is an online library of Liverpool Football Club songs and chants. In its first three years, the site received multiple updates, the latest of which saw me transform it into a database-driven React app, with users now able to filter and search through the numerous sets of lyrics.
