September 9th, 2021 — Awaceb are elated to share the new tropical adventure trailer of Tchia today during the PlayStation Showcase. Equally exciting is the news that Awaceb has partnered with Sony and Epic Games to help bring Tchia to audiences in 2022!
“A lot has happened since The Game Awards reveal of Tchia in December.” shared Awaceb co-founder Phil Crifo. “While we were hard at work on our game, our partnership with Google Stadia ended up not working out. Thankfully, PlayStation and Epic Games reached out soon after. They were super excited about the game, and our visions aligned perfectly. We all agreed that Tchia would be a great fit on both platforms!”
The new trailer shared today gives fans a glimpse of the charming world of Tchia, with exploration, ukulele playing, friendship, and *checks notes* object morphing at the core of Awaceb’s direction.
