Rar-files are extractable with WinRAR. It's like WinZip, only better :-) It's open source and you can find it on Google. I'll see what I can do about making a Zip-version as well!

I made a playthrough of Skumring on my new YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBWi-vp_WUkZjs41sHivJcjBxdEkBm2Sl

By the way, the volume was shot in the videos, during upload the placements were off-centered, and I am working on adding the rest of the acts as well. Hopefully, I can fix all the video defects.

I finally finished playing this game and it was fantastic!! Sure, I had a hard time figuring out some things here and there, plus the game glitched a few times, although that was probably my computer itself. But, overall, the story was great and I rate it a 5. Thanks for creating it.

Thanks a lot for the positive feedback! I'm really happy you enjoyed it. Regarding glitches, they very well might be inherent in the game. I have tried to fix everything, but I'm sure I left some behind in the game code :-)

I am having trouble playing this, as I am where I have to create a long lens camera with the magnifying glass, gutter pieces, and glue... But, every time I click on the gutter, it just says it "won't hold my weight." I looked at it first and everything. I checked every walkthrough I could find and there was never a solution. I have seen others with the same problem though. Any help? I'd really like to finish the game. Thanks!

After looking at the gutter once you should be able to click the bottom piece to pick it up! Cooper needs to spot the broken piece at the bottom before you can pick it up. Once in the inventory you need to use the broken wrench on it to split it into two pieces. Let me know if this helps!

Its nice to see an adventure game tick all the boxes required to be called a true "adventure game". You need humour, dialogue, puzzles, plot, cinematic design, which this game has paid attention to in all areas. Although, I think its paramount that puzzles in adventure games MUST be logical and you should never have to try and adapt your natural way of thinking to cater the games warped logic. Throwing a bottle at a component box to break off a cable? That is utterly nonsensical, as is using a wrench to break off a bit of chain. Why is it too noisy to move a barrel to a ladder but not lob a bottle at a wall? Leather doesn't really conduct electricity, maybe you should have wrap your wallet around the cable and pull it down? I think this is important part of the success of these games, hopefully you don't think I'm being harsh.

Good day mr. Calavera! You obviously have a good taste in adventure games with that nick and profile picture! I agree that it is slightly nonsensical, it's probably the worst puzzle in the game... Your solution is not too shabby, maybe ill put it into the game! Does not require too much animation changes either. Hope you still enjoyed the game to some extent, and caught some of the Grim references on your way to the brutal end!:-)

You've clearly put a lot of work into this game, well done on your release! There is something disturbing about the way the main character walks though LOL!
