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.

Another aquaMansion!   Smiley

Sure is! It's how I feel sometimes when Jack is dying a thousand deaths.
Shocked


Believe me, I feel your pain!  Grin


Wow! Can't wait for LCR.

Hi everybody....

this is to inform you that beta-testing of "Les Catacombes Rouges", my latest mansion, is nearly terminated. Thanks to the incredible effort - and time - of Rose and Semi-Native, who are such a great help !

I guess I will be putting in the last "finishing touches" during the next week and then I'm sending it to the admins.

BTW, until very reecently I had completely forgotten that we have this shared mansion which is called "Catacombs" too......while writing the BBBs for LCR I had asked Semi-Native if there was an equivalent word for "les catacombes" in English, can you believe it ???

She reminded me of our "Catacombs" mansion....so I thought maybe I should rename my mansion ??!

What do you think???

Is "Les Catacombes Rouges" unique and different enough (from "Catacombs") ?  
Or should I better rename it ?     Undecided    Huh

Well, 'Les Catacombes' is a very well-established Parisian attraction. Seeing that you use the French term instead of the English one I immediately thought of them and not of our glorious collaborative mansion.

That being said, it probably helps that I am French  Wink

If you like, you can replace it by the more official: L'Ossuaire Rouge.

(According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catacombs_of_Paris the official name for the catacombs is l'Ossuaire Municipal. I didn't know that!)

"Les Catacombes Rouges" is unique on it's own. I don't think you need to rename your mansion.

Thanks, that is reassuring.
Guess I can keep the name..... !

@ Toybox:
 I was indeed thinking about the Paris catacombs when I designed + named it. I used the French name to make that connection clear.
I had once visited them, when I was about 16 years old, and I'll never forget that.
I always found it a rather intriguing thought.... that there is a huge city which has a whole system, almost like a maze, of underground catacombs.....  I was always a fan of secret passageways, labyrynths and all that..... that's why they feature so prominently in my mansions.

And even if my catacombs-system is going much deeper down than the real Catacombes, and you only have one small house instead of a whole city above it, I thought it was an appropriate name.

And yes....maybe it was because of the French spelling that I, too, never made the connection with our Catacombs-mansion.  Cool

aquaMat, you'd love working at Disney World, then. There is a huge system of tunnels underneath the parks that employees use for getting around, storage, moving equipment, etc. Most visitors are totally unaware that they exist.

Ooh, that's very interesting.....and a bit strange... !!   Shocked   Huh

Do you work at Disneyland, or why do you know that ??
(I bet not many people do know....)

I remember in the town I grew up in, which had a big university, there was an area for the "university hospital", actually several medical facilities and hospitals almost like a little district in itself.... and there it was the same, but it actually has a whole system of underground streets !!

They are for the maintenance people but also for medical transports to drive as fast as possible between the different hospitals.
Fascinated me as a kid.....

I worked at Disney World for a year when I first moved to Orlando in the late 70's, that's how I know. I didn't work in the park, though, I had an office job. Regular office hours and days, which was nice.
Cool
