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.

Radeka Pre-release
02.01.2008 at 04:13:17
 
The mansion has been sent into Freddy for approval. Here is the description:


RADEKA
A custom graphic mansion by Matt & Joe B.
The mansion has 97 rooms, 10 secrets and a 59025 coin score.

After Jack's narrow escape from the Ghost King (Ghosthunter) he has decided he needs a vacation and decides to visit a series of archeological sites to see what he might find. His journey takes him from Frankie's Funhouse on top of a mountain, thru underground caves and caverns, past smelly swamps and old temple ruins to a snow covered ancient castle that leads to a hidden Tibetian fortune left by the Shadow.
During this adventure you will run into difficult challenges. Most of the time the best strategy is to take a moment to examine the room before proceeding. There are a lot of what might be considered cheap deaths that can easily (and not so easily) be avoided by taking a little time to examine the surroundings. In particular, WHEN YOU SEE WEBS THERE ARE SPIDERS! Instead of using the simple MM Spider webs we developed a long stringy white variant.
The MM vine has been split off into both an off-white rope and  a bright green flower-less vine both of which can be climbed. The majority of standard MM brick tiles have been replaced with custom M&J tile sets and there are 8 new backgrounds. We also developed a pretty spiffy new snake which when used with a special moving platform and the swamp tile set creates the illusion of a snake swimming thru the mud.
Feel free to use any of the included graphics in your own mansions but we'd like a credit line somewhere about the graphics.

Thanks and enjoy !!!!!

Matt & Joe

Personally I think the snake graphic set is kick butt, but you'll see soon enough. I just get the feeling a lot of MMers won't play it because the look is kind of not what they're used to:

Mmmm. I don't think so. Now that files-swopping is coming to its end, all (new) mansions with customized data will finally got a major increasing interest. I am pretty sure about that.

Great to see one of your custom graphics/ mansions combo again! Your snake really does "kick butt" by the way! Wink Grin

That's why Matt said sneaky. If you look between the 2 snakes in the air down to the swamp tiles at the bottom, you'll see 2 yellow eyes. In a still shot they're a little tough to pick out but when they're moving they're easier to see but will still get you if you don't pay attention! Kind of like the real world. Snakes are usually tough to see. There are exceptions (Coral Snake f.i.) but most of them easily hide in their environment. That's what we were going for (Matt's learning nature science in school right now). BTW, the standard green snake is still there and it hides just great in grass!
Keep all these things in mind when you do start playing Radeka.

Of course now I'm down to a backlog of 4 mansions, 2 of them are XP. I promised Freddy I'd clean up some old mansion stuff so we won't be releasing anytime REAL soon, but they are coming. I was going to back off on custom graphics but since it's; A. a lot easier now with no file swapping; B. Can enhance the playing experience; C. Allows us to be artistic; D. Is fun to conceptualize, I'm going to do primarily custom graphics mansions.
Since I've built up quite a library of tiles and graphics I can also help out others with realizing their mansion concepts. Oh yeah, and I'm Back.....
Cool Cool Cool

Nature and science? what grade is matt in? Anyway, those yellow eyes give me ideas for when I do make my custom mansion. I thought it was a giant Croc at first!  Cheesy
