Set in New Caledonia, the home of developers Awaceb, Tchia is a tropical adventure that draws upon the very beautiful real-life experience of this archipelago located in the Pacific Ocean.
The game features many aspects of the area – from flora and fauna to music, languages and folklore. In the PlayStation blog, the developers say:
A fair comparison for our approach is how Studio Ghibli treats Japanese culture in some of their films. They are fantastical places but definitely “feel” very japanese in many ways, and that makes for some super fascinating worlds.
Focusing on exploration, Tchia, the titular character, can climb anything she stumbles upon and even glide around, taking in the very many beautiful sites. There will be puzzles, secrets, and even a rhythm section where she’ll whip out her ukelele and play a tune?!

No release date just yet, but the game will be coming to the PS4 and the PS5, and if the screenshots are anything to go by, this will be a very memorable experience.
