- Duels: Got a score to settle with a hateful hombre? Or maybe a friendly face-off with a friendly kemosabe? Jump into Duels, a special one-on-one gunfight, and select from three maps tailored for the mode to see who is the quickest and who falls the furthest.

Named by Game Informer as one of the Best Indie Games at PAX East 2018*, Sky Noon takes place in a reinvented Wild West universe where the frontier floats among the clouds. Powerful factions crave to control the most precious resource in the West – water. Players take the role of hired gunslingers that battle opposing fighters across floating islands in the sky. There are no health meters in Sky Noon; instead, to eliminate enemies, players use various super-power compressed air weapons to send them flying out of their boot spurs! Grappling hooks and lassos are constantly used to prevent players from falling off into the great blue sky. Combined with other items like steam-powered jet boots, jump pads, teleporters, and more, cowboys need to be quick on the draw and light on their boots in the fast-paced, aerial mayhem of Sky Noon.
Sky Noon is now available on Steam Early Access. Cowboys looking to join the gang should follow the game development on Twitter, ‘Like’ us on Facebook, connect on Discord, check us out on Reddit, and visit the official site SkyNoonGame.com.
