    So eventually I plan on releasing a commercial game and I was trying to figure out the best way for credits/ attribution. My original plan was to have a credits page within the game but I don't really like the organization of the ones I've seen so far. My question is, is it enough to have an attribution file included with the game? I already have a complete list of everyone who has contributed to my game and I want to know if putting that file into my main game file is good enough or if I need to include it within the game itself. Thank for any help!

    A credits "README.txt" file or a end-of-game credits sequence are the most used ways of doing it.

    People also solve it with a licenses folder, where they have all credits and licences they need.

    I do a text file named "credits" in the game folder, and I also have a credits scene in-game after completing the game.
