So it all starts with the fact that the game Return of the Obra Dinn (I love it, just in case you wonder) won Best Art Direction during The Game Awards 2018. We discussed it here with a friend of mine and turned out we understood the name of the category differently. In Polish direction and director are two different words. Direction translates to "kierunek" as in a "property of a vector" (or in general direction of a motion, be it physical motion, artistic or economical trend and so on), director translates to "reżyser", as in "someone who leads the team of the filmmakers and controls the artistic side of the movie" (in Poland producer was more of a person involved in organization and logistics than in artistic decisions, these were reserved for the director).* So, is the "Best Art Direction" a prize for the artistic trends set/used/created in the game, or for the work done by whoever was responsible for making the artistic decisions? Perhaps it boils down to direction as a noun vs direction as a verb. Screenshot just to show you how the the game looks like, it is kind of a criminal puzzle revolving around a fate of the crew of the brig Obra Dinn. *This is a bit simplified, but I am leaving nuances aside.
