Independent game developer Lunar Rooster and indie games partner Reverb Triple XP unveiled a new trailer to the highly-anticipated first person action brawler, Sky Noon. The new Sky Noon Abilities trailer shows off many of the unique skills granted by secondary items in the game. Cowboys in the reimagined steampunk Wild West of Sky Noon can take advantage of Jetboots to fly across the Floating Frontier, Boosters to initiate a turbo boost charge, the all-important Lasso to grab items (and enemies) from afar, and other cool toys to gain the advantage in air-powered showdowns

Named 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 cartels 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 must constantly be used to prevent players from falling off into the great blue sky. Combined with other items like steam-powered jetpacks, jump pads, and teleporters, cowboys need to be quick on the draw and light on their boots in the fast-paced, aerial mayhem of Sky Noon.
Sky Noon will be launching on Steam Early Access in Q2 2018.
