Actionsoft's latest game, Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills,  includes 28 mansions. The 8 Built-in mansions have 3 difficulties along with 4 extra custom mansions. We don't have that many other custom MM2 mansions yet. Design your own custom mansion! Info below.  You can find out more about the game here.

The original Midnight Mansion game contains over 150 mansions. The 8 included mansions which have 3 difficulty levels each, and about 115 approved custom mansions which you can download here and also several freely uploaded mansions. To know the difference between these three types of mansions, click here.

Are you a creative person and thinking of designing a mansion yourself? Or want to know about how to upload it? Click here and we'll show you! You'll find guidelines for betatesters here.

News:
Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills version 1.0.2b has been released. This fixes a bug in Jasperlone Mountains Hard. Simply re-download the game, bring over your custom mansions folder from the old version and play on. All your saves and high scores will not be changed.

Midnight Mansion HD (MM1) is now available at the Mac App Store and at the Actionsoft website. A Windows version is now available.

Here is a list of downloadable MM1 HD ready custom mansions, which also work in the Windows version of the game.

The MM2 custom mansion Hanging Gardens of Babylon by Freddy/SandyBean/Josephine was updated on 16 Feb 2014 to add a third section.

And if you can't get it to work, you can still play it with the regular graphics. Not what the designer would want, but at least you could play.
Cool

Wingy, I've been enjoying your Starcraft Episodes very much, and am amazed at what you've accomplished with the graphics. But I have to confess that once it was posted that the game could be played with the original sprites, that's how I had to continue playing. Only because us older folks have difficulty seeing with lower-contrast graphics. ShockedP

I don't get it. Are you only confused about the graphics because its all grey-ish? Ted will be better. It's going to be colourful and best of all it's comical, witty, droll, humorous, wacky, waggish, entertaining, hilarious and jocular! (Don't ask me, I got it out of a Thesaurus)

He's talking about the same principle that lets the yellow spoilers work. When two colors are close enough together it becomes harder to tell them apart (especially as the eyes age).

What this means in the context of Midnight Mansion is that if there is not enough contrast between foreground and background, then some players may have to squint to tell where the platforms are!

I myself tend to focus ahead of Jack and watch him with my peripheral vision. With low-contrast graphics, though, that doesn't work. I found this out while testing the early Dominator betas--I kept running JAC off platforms because I couldn't tell with the corner of my eye where they ended! But then the amazing joeb fixed it, and all was right with the world.

Don't worry, there's going to be a blue sky background, and there's a fire background, and there's a forest background. I have a brown platform for the fire place, so I think its ok. But I suppose I should make a yellow platform... You've seen my screenshots, they're not THAT low contrast, right?

Just to make it clear... its Ted, not TED. It says TED in my avatar because I want to get the message through! Tongue
