Awaceb and Kepler Interactive have released a new gameplay trailer for their Unreal Engine 4-powered open-world adventure game, Tchia. In this video, we join game director Phil Crifo for a dive into Tchia’s richly realized world in the gameplay series’ first featurette.
The video ventures out with the young heroine, Tchia, for a glimpse at the game’s fictional world. As the press release reads:
“Tchia’s trip includes visits with lively and memorable locals as she takes a break from the sandy shores and cliff sides to chat, practice tunes with her ukelele and partake in her island’s traditions. Awaceb’s small, nine-person team draws inspiration for Tchia’s world from the childhood friendship of its co-founders, who grew up together in New Caledonia. Awaceb has used the co-founders’ love for their homeland as a guiding light while creating Tchia, building a comprehensive tribute to the island and its people reflected across the game’s iconography, cultural traditions, fauna, voicework and themes.”
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 tool.
Kepler Interactive plans to release the game in early 2023, exclusively via Epic Games Store!
