The game was originally made by Iron Claw Interactive as Western Quake³ and a first version (WQ3 beta 2.0) was released in 2003, then still as a modification of the original game. After that, all development was ceased. In May 2005 the work was taken over by a new team, Smokin' Guns Productions, and the revamped game was eventually released as a standalone title on 1st January 2009.
