Noontide is a high-speed Hack'n'Slash in a similar spirit to Devil May Cry. Noontide’s core mechanics revolve around the MODE system, which stands for Mobile Offensive Defensive Elucidating system.

We've has just finished up the features for Noontide and will be releasing a playable build by the end of the week. Though for the moment I uploaded a video of a basic juggling combo.
As far as the gametype is concerned I had an interesting decision to make, In the Mercenaries mode of Resident Evil 5 a unarmed kill will result in a 5 second time extension which is pivotal to acquiring a high score. I'm guessing the unarmed kill was chosen due to the effort required to execute the attack the problem is Noontide doesn't have a "extra effort" technique. Well either way I've put something together and hopefully it works out.
Back in a week =)
