Tchia shows off its real life inspirations

Meet the people of Tchia.

Tchia may be a fictional game set in an imaginary world, but it takes great pride in its real-life roots and inspirations. Developer Awaceb uses the real people, cultures, and locations of New Caledonia to craft the heartwarming and rich world of Tchia.

The Awaceb YouTube channel uploaded its third episode in its developer mini-series, stating, "Meet the people who have worked on Tchia and how the project is deeply rooted in the New Caledonian way of life." In the video, the development team details their adventures in real-life New Caledonia and how they directly inspired Tchia.

Awaceb has not only used the people and culture of New Caledonia as an inspiration, but you can actually find them in the game. Thoane, a local of New Caledonia, not only served as a guide and translator, but he voiced Trene Drösinöe, the father of Tchia, in-game. Players will discover that many of the voices and music of the game directly came from the people of New Caledonia.

While Tchia tells a fantasy story about a young girl who uses magical powers to save her father and the archipelago, nearly everything the player experiences can be found through its real-world inspirations.
