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/brell was updated on 19. Nov 2023 to add a fourth section. Available here

The Mansion Family PART 2 -how shall I release it?
31.12.2007 at 18:08:51
 
Dear friends,

you might remember that I told you (prior to the release of TMF 3 - A Wondrous Place) that Part 2 of The Mansion Family (a.k.a. "Northern Lights") is currently put on hold. I had abandoned its design in Spring 2007 because I wasn't entirely satisfied with the snow landscapes (and also got a little tired of it).

Last night I replayed the part of it that's ready and thought it would be nice if it did get released - one way or the other.

So I need your help!!  How shall I release it?
Should I....

1.  Dust it off and polish it a little and release the only half-finished mansion "as is" in Free Up- and Downloading ?   ...or....

2.  Wait until inspiration strikes me again one sunny day and finish it proper and do an "official release" ?

What do you think ??    Undecided    Shocked    Cool

Hi aquaMat,

Personally, I'd rather wait a little longer and play a finished mansion. Patience is not easy for me, but I think it would be worth it.

Yes..... I guess at the moment I tend to think it'll be better and wait and do a proper release.... if only for the sake of having the whole TMF series released correctly / officially.

Other opinions?

Anyone?

No other opinion. Completing is IMO the only option.

Hi aquaMat,

I think you should
quit your job
and work on TMF;2  full time, making it another stunning addition to the TMF series !!! Grin Wink Cheesy  (just my honest opinion!)

Thanks for the opinions and the nice words....

I feel we're all having a similar opinion about this... so I will wait 'til I'm in the mood (and have the time) to finish TMF 2, even if it means you'll probably not be able to play it before March or something, and then release it officially.

Thx again.
