Why did they put the grammatically wrong semicolon before an and?
I smell Windows there.
It is not correct grammar.
But some people think it is correct. If it was a prepositional phrase or a gerund phrase, it would work, but it is not either of these. (There is no object) If the sentence was, "Having designed and created a game, Steve unlocked the achievement."
The issue is that there would never be a comma, unless there were 3 or more things done or the phrase was a dependent clause. Look up the Oxford comma and verbal phrases.
I think there should be like "A, B, and C"
"A, and B" is not allowed
