by Rainier on March 21, 2024 @ 2:03 p.m. PDT

Tchia is a tropical open-world adventure where you climb, glide, swim, and sail your boat around a beautiful archipelago in this physics-driven sandbox game.

Use Tchia's special ability to take control of any animal or object you can find, and Jam on your fully playable Ukulele. Use their unique gameplays and abilities to travel, solve puzzles and uncover secrets. Fly around as a bird, explore the ocean as a fish or dig treasures as a dog. Over 30 playable animals and hundreds of objects.

Jump and glide your way across a vast archipelago and use the Tricks system for cool stunts and dives. The free climbing mechanic lets you ascend anything in the world without restriction including any physics-driven tree. Sail your customizable boat on turquoise lagoons and dive around coral reefs and shipwrecks.

Just jamming by yourself or playing alongside NPCs, your fully playable ukulele will be a trusty companion throughout the game. Use it at key story moments during rhythm sections, or play unlockable melodies at any point in the open world to trigger special events such as attracting animals, triggering rainfall…

Take Tchia on a heartfelt adventure and meet a diverse cast of characters inspired by New Caledonian cultures. Fully animated cutscenes voiced in traditional language will punctuate your journey while an original orchestral score infused with local sounds creates a unique and immersive world.

Developer Awaceb and publisher Kepler Interactive announced that Tchia is now available on Steam, alongside a wealth of new gameplay features and updates. 

Tchia will also be coming to Nintendo Switch later this summer.

New for the Steam release, and available at the same time via a free in-game update for players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC via the Epic Games Store, players will be able to enjoy a variety of exciting, new features to enhance their journey through the beautiful archipelago, including: 

  • Outfits Perks System – Each piece of equipment Tchia finds in the world now provides various boosts and benefits, such as extra environmental resistances or stamina boosts. Explore the world and discover new items to suit your playstyle – looking stylish (or sometimes goofy) to boot. 
  • New Cosmetic Items – Search for brand-new costumes and accessories hidden within the island locales to stand out from the crowd and show your personality, such as a classy top hat, or a hilarious clown costume.
  • New Soul-Melodies – Play your ukulele and unlock new abilities to help explore the world around you in whole new ways, like a blast of powerful energy to knock fruit out of trees or leaping to new heights and performing tricks in the sky.

Stylize Tchia’s clothing and boat with hundreds of unlockable cosmetic items ranging from a traditional look to the most over the top options. You will also unlock useful and fun tools along the way such as a flashlight, slingshot, compass, camera...

The world of Tchia was inspired by New Caledonia, A tiny island in the Pacific Ocean, homeland of Awaceb's co-founders. Inspiration was taken from the rich and varied local landscapes, cultures, music, languages, folklores and traditions and was used to create a fictional world and to tell a universal story that anyone can understand and enjoy. The characters are voiced by local talent in traditional languages, and subtitled in many languages including English, French, Russian, Chinese, German, and more.

Currently available for PS4, PS5 and PC (Epic Games Store / Steam), Tchia is coming to Nintendo Switch later this summer.
