Set sail on PC and PlayStation Consoles on March 21
LONDON (Feb. 23, 2023) – Get your suitcases at the ready as publisher Kepler Interactive and developer Awaceb today revealed that the charming soul-jumping adventure, Tchia, will make its way to PC (via Epic Games Store) and PlayStation consoles on March 21. The game will also be available day one with PlayStation Plus Extra.
Take a deep dive into Tchia’s heart-warming narrative with a brand-new story trailer revealed today that shines a spotlight on Tchia’s antagonist, Meavora: https://youtu.be/lfASy4HYSvM
When her father is abducted and her home is taken over by Meavora, the archipelago’s tyrannical ruler, Tchia, the game’s heroine, embarks on a grand adventure fueled by mystical wonder and disarmingly tender moments. As players traverse this fictional land inspired heavily by the island nation of New Caledonia, they’ll be introduced to a variety of new cultures, traditions and languages. Along the way, Tchia will unlock her own otherworldly abilities, letting her soul-jump into animals and objects found across her home in order to solve puzzles, traverse freely and avoid danger. Using this ability, her trusty slingshot and a magical ukulele, players will guide Tchia as she bravely frees her home from the clutches of this tyrannical god.
Tchia’s Oléti edition was also unveiled today, a celebratory package that will add a selection of cosmetic items inspired by Kepler Interactive’s family of games. Customize your boat, glider or even outfit with Sifu, Scorn, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn and Cat Quest inspired designs. The Oléti edition can be pre-ordered today on PC at https://store.epicgames.com/p/
Tchia launches on to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC via the Epic Games Store on March 21, 2023. For more information, visit https://www.awaceb.com/tchia.
