The final episode of Awaceb’s behind-the-scenes miniseries for Tchia is here. The heartwarming video gives an inside look at the people who helped inspire the characters and island we will experience in the game. Tchia releases Spring 2023 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Check out the announcement below:
Founded by two childhood friends from New Caledonia, Awaceb’s next title, Tchia, is a love letter to their homeland. As such, it’s filled with references and inspiration taken straight from the island nation from landscapes and nature to the creatures and landmarks you’ll spot along the way. Throughout Tchia, players will be able to hear the native languages of New Caledonia with a cast of characters voiced by local talent in Drehu and French. They’ll also experience its vibrant culture and traditions – filled with beautiful music and art – firsthand.
Tchia is an open-world sandbox that invites players to jump into the adventure of a lifetime. Players can explore the ocean depths or become one with nature, with the game’s unique soul-jumping mechanic allowing them to take control of over 30 animals and hundreds of objects, turning the environment into the ultimate exploration tool.
Not everything is calm and relaxing in Tchia. The island Tchia, the game’s heroine, calls home has been invaded by strange fabric creatures called the Maano, who, under the orders of the archipelago’s evil ruler, have abducted her father. Players will have to use everything at their disposal to take them out. In between the action, players can rest, take a break and jam with a fully playable ukulele.
