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.


The genuine love the Awaceb team have for New Caledonia, homeland of Awaceb’s co-founders, is overflowing in this gameplay snippet with its emphasis on cruising the glistening blue waters that surround the island, exploring the ocean depths and traversing the waterway of a beautiful archipelago . The art style, co lour palettes and music come together to create something incredibly heartwarming and welcoming.

Away from the water, Tchia also draws inspiration from the flora and fauna of New Caledonia to create a charming open-world to explore - take control of almost any animal or object you can find, or jam on your fully playable Ukulele!

Tchia will be moving to an early 2023 release to give the development team more time to realise their creative vision.

"Hey everyone,

We are overwhelmed by how far his project, inspired by a tiny island we call home, has brought us. After 3 years of passion and hard work, we owe it to ourselves and everyone who has been supportive to deliver the best game we possibly can.

To that end, we have decided to move our release window to early 2023. This extra time will allow us to really polish every aspect of the game and flash out all the little details that we know will make Tchia a really special experience.

Thank you again for your support. We have a lot of exciting things to show on the road to launch, so stay tuned!

Phil Crifo (Game Director)"


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.

Tchia is coming to PS4, PS5 and PC (Steam/Epic Games Store) in early 2023.
