Retro Epic (South Africa)
, ,
Founders: Niki Boshoff, Keith Boshoff

KwaZulu Natal, the garden province of South Africa, might be better known for its warm ocean currents and rich history as the “Place of the Zulu”, but it should also be famed for being the founding home of the RetroEpic Software game studio.

RetroEpic Software started with just two very passionate people – brothers, Niki and Keith Boshoff, in 2007. Since then, we’ve grown to a larger team with a wide range of game development skills and talents. We’ve also moved to Cape Town to get a better view of the famous Table Mountain.

We’re very proud of both the independent game titles we have produced as well as the game development projects we have worked on with our partners.
