According to Matthieu Rabehaja, co-founder of Lomay Studio with Haikajy Mag, he explained the inspiration behind the game;

Having seen the interest of people in relation to this overview, the concept of Gazkar was born: a Malagasy racing game in a purely Malagasy decoration. It will be available on different platforms: Android, iPhone, but also on PC.”
