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.

Background maker: Painter X

I just got a trial version of Painter X (www.corel.com) is great for making backgrounds for Midnight Mansion. There's a free trial there.

This image I painted in 3 minutes... If I put a bit more effort into it, then it would become a great background for Midnight Mansion.

I first paint-bucketed the background dark blue, then did a few angled strokes of an oil brush with a slightly brighter blue to make that nice Midnight sky. The ground I used a green and a normal brush, and the trees on the ground where just  dark-greenish-brown color. The stars where just white dots, just clicked with a normal brush at a reasonable size.

The moon, was a nice detail. It was like doing the star, (just clicking once, not dragging, with a bigger brush) Then I got a smaller brush and drew the craters and stuff on the moon with a normal grey tone.

Then I got this picture... took me 3 minutes.

Uhh... I think you gotta make an account on the Corel website then you can download it. If you're having trouble, use google to translate the page.
