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" in Mansion Names
13.01.2008 at 19:23:22
 
Would it be possible to program mansion names that start with "The" to ignore that word? That way, the mansion name would show up alphabetically under the second, and more appropriate, name.

For example, "The Great Escape" would show up under G instead of T.

I can't pretend that I didn't have this thought before, either.... but I still don't think it's such a good idea.
Through months and years of calling up mansion names in lists as they are now, it would rather add confusion than minimize it, should we suddenly change the name structure.

I'm simply used to look for "The Great escape" under "T" as it has always been there.....

The best solution, therefore, would be a facility / process where each user can decide whether he wants to change the name's display or not..... an individual solution, so to speak.

But wait.....  doesn't the Mac offer us that possibility already ?
You're free to change your mansions' names to whatever you want, including the deletion of the "The", just as you can with every other Mac file name.
You might not be able to access saved games, though, as long as you don't change the names in the saved files as well !

This is a smart man!!! Why didn't I think of it? I have occasionally changed the name to put the mansion on top of the others! Shocked
