Who Did What?

Author: 
Lady Nerevar

Videogames are a highly collaborative medium. While we are attributing contributions to specific developers, each part is often created, edited, or inspired by multiple people. Neither does this page represent an exhaustive list of everything a developer worked on. Finally, keep in mind that some of these attributions depend on human memory and may therefore not be 100% accurate.

If you have anything to add to this list, please let us know.
