Awaceb, makers of Fossil Echo, debuted their new game Tchia during the PlayStation Showcase 2021 event. Phil Crifo, Awaceb’s director, describes it as a toy box-style game that draws inspiration from Studio Ghibli’s style and pays tribute to New Caledonia, where Awaceb is based.

Tchia follows its protagonist of the same name as she explores the beautiful world around her.

Awaceb gave Tchia the unique ability to see the world through the eyes of any living creature, and the trailer shows her flying as a seagull before switching to a dog’s perspective as Tchia enjoys a robust dig in the mud.

Crifo and Awaceb recruited choirs of indigenous New Caledonian singers to help create an immersive soundtrack for Tchia, but the team also wants the environment itself to pull players in.

Everything, even the trees, is designed to inspire a sense of connection with the land and Tchia’s place in it. Trees help her spring into the air, while Tchia can also perform flips, dive off cliffs, and even sail on her own raft.

Tchia is planned for a 2022 release date on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. It is also releasing on Steam at some point, with the game’s product page simply saying “coming soon.”
