Port Horizon 1951. A city on the verge of collapse. Moral collapse. Crime. Corruption. Greed... Money. Private eye Cooper Chutney thought he was the exception. When a beautiful dame in distress enters his office he is ready to show that someone still cares about something in this wretched town. But as he soon will learn everything can change during a cold Port Horizon night... Skumringª features 30+ locations, 15+ characters and 40+ inventory items. It will also feature a varied soundtrack, consisting of traditional jazz and original interpretations of classical music.

I just noticed this right now! Thanks a lot for the interest, but the game is actually pretty much finished. I am wrapping up the implementation of the final dialogue now. Hopefully I can release it later this week or the next!

I wish I had seen this earlier though :-)
