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.

In this level, the whole background scrolls in multiple parallax layers. It's pretty cool.

Oh, and for the title screen picture, the whole thing is animated. The stars in the background are moving, the space station is floating/rotating, and even the buttons move into position when it first appears.

I'm not a fan of shooter games, but I really admire the graphics, they're stunning!

Thanks, I agree. If I do future games like Midnight Mansion, I hope to be able to use the same artist, at least for background and tile artwork.

Wow Vern, you're really progressing in your field of Programming.

You said awhile back, the background animates? That will be pretty awesome.

Love the graphics, the game looks leet. How many people are working on that game? I'm curious!

If you need a beta tester... *cough* Wink

I can't say very much...  Lips Sealed

But I can say THIS GAME IS AWESOME!  Cool

Haha.  It looks fantastic, and is a lot of fun.  Very different from Midnight Mansion, but it still has that beautiful level of ActionSoft polish behind it.

I hope everyone here tries the demo, even if you don't think you will like this kind of game!    Smiley
