I've seen game designers added to the art department and I've also seen them in miscellaneous. Which one should they actually be in?
Hi, ZT. I'm not aware of a specific submission guideline concerning this. Where a particular "game designer" credit belongs depends upon the context of the game designer's work, as he/she may be the game maker ("writer") or an artist of graphical elements upon/within the board, stage, set, sandbox or world of the game, as in "art department" or "production design". So/But, given any ambiguity, "game designer" credits can simply be placed in the "other crew" (or "miscellaneous") section. Sometimes the on-screen credits of video games are remarkably unspecific, like listing a whole bunch of people simply under the heading of "game designers".
