History

Retro Highway was developed by Gearhead Games, a tiny international company led by Nicolai in collaboration with Berg. They met on TIGForums and teamed up for a ‘quick collab’ which subsequently turned into their longest development endeavor so far. Even though some people may tell them that they’re doing a great job, they actually have absolutely no idea what they’re doing.

    - Bernardo Espanol, Nardio
