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.

I need to get me an imaginative six-year-old (must be seven by now, right?) to draw up mansion plans. That sounds like a hoot. I used to do entire game designs on notebook paper and mail them off to Nintendo, before the Nintendo Entertainment System even existed. It would have been amazing to have somebody translate them into working games right in front of my eyes.

Actually 8 at the end of May. What IS a hoot is listening to him describe the action and how the critters are supposed to interact with the player. One of these days if I remember I'll post one of his drawings and try to do a recording of his explanation. Trust me, sometimes it's a REAL ROFLMAO...

later,

Joe B

ps, what also kills me is when I tell him something won't work and he shows me how it does or I design something and he shows me where it won't work and then I inevitably get the "See Dad, I told you!"
Go have one of your own and see what I mean, of course you also have to accept that you'll be broke and will also get the constant string of "WHY" s.

Pretty much. Still haven't found a Jill I'm happy with but the dogs, monkeys, killer parrots, etc are done. I also don't know if I'm doing any custom music but it goes without saying the sounds will have to be different.


I don't think contest entries will be able to replace sounds. Even if they're wrapped in some tool that makes it easy to switch. That's fine for downloadable mansions, but the idea here is to be able to click on the mansion map within the game, and have the mansion just launch. There is not any provision for replacing sounds, and so I'm pretty sure you won't be able to do this on mansion submissions for the contest. Sorry.

You can't start the contest without the timed-expansion thing! I wonder when Vern will put it out... Will you also put a expansion demo out, Vern? I'm not sure you would, because nobody's ever done it, to my knowledge.

Oh boy...why do I do these things I do when I know it'll only make things worse...deep breath...here goes:

The update will be out when it's ready. Vern would not just sit on a completed update for no good reason, any more than you would sit on a mansion you had made. I think it's safe to say he wants to see it released more than you do. Just let him finish it.

I'm asking politely here because I don't want to be rude and also because it's not my place to take a tone of authority. Unfortunately, since you've ignored all other polite requests from administrators and otherwise, I have no reason to expect you'll listen to me when I ask politely.

So...why post at all, when I know it will do no good (and only make things worse)? Did you know that a form of Hebrew writing works this way (Opening concept, build to main idea, reiterate/restate opening concept)?

Oh, that sounds fantastic. I can't wait to have a needy, curious, freakishly small human who's smarter and more honest than me hanging around the house.

Ah but there are benefits. "Mom, you know Dad really needs the iPod so he can record Discovery Channel stuff for me  and then I can watch on his VR glasses and not disturb your Desperate Housewives or Wife Swap, or....."

Plus sometimes he's generally funny with his comments about the weatherman having to face an angry mob because he couldn't get the forecast right. And things like that. Honesty in children can be a very eye opening experience because I often say to myself I wish I'd said that because he's right. I love the little guy to death because for all those high blood pressure moments there are the moments that can REALLY bring tears to your eyes because of the honesty or lack of inhibition in voicing his true feelings.

Not to mention the benefits of grandchildren, which you are privileged to spoil (almost) as you wish and then send them home to their parents when you've had enough  Grin

No biggie Vern. Just glad I found out now. I guess that also means we 're limited to using the standard backgrounds too? And the standard music? Only tiles and sprites will be allowed to change so the snake and birds sprites will have to stay in the snake and bird family.

But at least I'll have snow!!
