The Bafflement of a Paranoid Ego-Maniac
I recently completed 'Puzzle Agent 2' and was surprised to find that there is a character in it named Ed Davis (who happens to be referred to as a bit of a loony). Whilst my name is spelled Davies (with an e), I couldn't help but wonder whether this name was a "homage" to myself. My whole life I've had people misspell my surname without the 'e', it's not too hard to imagine a developer doing the same.
Sure, I know that sounds egotistical and self-absorbed (and heck, it probably is) but it seems like a very strange name to use for the game's setting considering (to the best of my knowledge) that Davis (and Davies) are names of Welsh origin.
Do the developers even read these forums? If so then why would one of them make a reference to myself? Why am I so self-obsessed and neurotic?
It's most likely a coincidence but honestly stranger things have happened.
