    Celebrate a year of fun and exploration with Tchia’s first anniversary

    Out now on Steam plus new game update for the sun-soaked adventure

    LONDON – March 22nd, 2024 – Developer Awaceb and publisher Kepler Interactive today celebrate the first anniversary of Tchia with the game’s release on Steam available now. While the Steam version of Tchia has already received a brand new update, players on the Epic Games Store and PlayStation consoles can anticipate the update’s arrival later this month. With dozens of industry award wins and nominations earned since Tchia’s launch in March 2023, including winning the ‘Games for Impact’ award at The Game Awards 2023 and being nominated for the ‘Game Beyond Entertainment’ award at the 20th BAFTA Games Awards taking place in April 2024, Tchia has touched the hearts of players around the world, and today’s celebrations thank those players while welcoming even more into a stunning world inspired by New Caledonia – the homeland of Awaceb’s co-founders.  

    Watch the new trailer here:


    Since launching in March 2023, Tchia has been played by over 1.4 million players globally, introducing fans to an endearing protagonist and a beautiful open world. Players can jump back into their adventures with a major new game update available already on Steam, but coming soon to the remaining platforms, which introduces a number of new features including an Outfit Perks System, new Cosmetic Items, and new Soul Melodies that open up a whole host of new ways to play. From spawning food instantly around you, sailing with speed with the new Super Boat Soul Melody, leading a pack of animals with new Attract Animals abilities, Tchia’s new game update provides a bounty of new ways to play and interact with the beautiful, sun-soaked archipelago. 

    Additionally, players on Steam can now purchase Tchia from today, starting their adventures in a beautiful sandbox where they’ll climb, glide, swim and sail and discover new secrets. Furthermore, fans can also look forward to Tchia launching on Nintendo Switch™ this summer, with a physical edition available in partnership with Maximum Games available to pre-order now. 

    Tchia is now available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC (via the Epic Games Store and Steam) and launching on Nintendo Switch in Summer 2024. For more information, visit https://www.awaceb.com/tchia
