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.

The Mansion Fam.3: A Wondrous Place
28.10.2007 at 18:52:25
 
Dear friends,

I'd like to announce that my new mansion THE MANSION FAMILY: A Wondrous Place  is to be released soon.
It is now finished and will be thoroughly tested in this week.

It does feature a few smaller innovations, but also a couple of nods of reference to innovatiuons of other forum-members that have impressed me, like the "Toybox-trick" (recently re-activated by brell) etc.

It's a bit harder than TMF 1 (Mind Mines) but I tried to avoid frustration by adding enough save points. There will be 6 save pedestals, and the size is about 75 rooms.

Hope I have wet your appetite.....    Look forward to release !   Wink   Cheesy

In another post a couple of weeks ago I had mentioned what's the reason for this:
The Mansion Family 2: Northern Lights, which I had started already back in spring 2007 and which featured among snowy landscapes also a new "magic spell" trick, was not completed (as of now).

I was not entirely satisfied with the snow and ice parts (which are not easy to do) and besides Joe B has done a very good snow job in his Ghosthunter mansion, so I abandoned the TMF 2 project for the time being. I will definitely complete it one fine day, but I guess that has to wait until the Exp.Pack is out, so I can use those features.

It's shame thpugh, as I'd have loved to bring you that new magic spell......  I'm waiting for almost 8 months now to introduce that. Unfortunately I couldn't include it in TMF 3, as thematically it wouldn't have made sense there.

If all else fails, I might build a small new mansion around it sometime.

Hi aquaMat !

Sounds like a fantastic mansion, I can't wait for it to be released, since I really enjoyed all your other CM's.   Smiley

TMF 2 also sounds very exciting, with snow and all, I think it's great that you are being patient to release it until you have the graphics you really want.  (Hard to do, though I imagine!)  I am going to play TMF;MM again (now for the third time) in preparation for your new one, even though the between mansion is still on hold.  

I'm looking forward to seeing the innovations, and playing a hard mansion. Cheesy

thanks so much,

SandyBean Smiley

Thanks for the nice words, SandyBean !

I'm waiting for your mansion, too...!

BTW, of course I will wait with my release until your mansion has been released first.
It's always better if there are not several mansions being released at the same time.....

I am very much looking forward to both of your mansions. Jack has been exploring lots of old places lately, and is looking for new real estate.

Cool

Thank You,  aquaMat,  that is very Gentlemanly of you ! Smiley

We are just working on some loose ends now, and are still on schedule for Nov. 1st release, so you should not have to wait too long.  Cheesy

Take care,
