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.

Everybody busy playing "Les Catacombes Rouges

There's no new post traffic for 3 or 4 days now.....   Huh

...is that because everyone's busy playing LCR ??   Wink    Cheesy

(In that case: you are all excused...   Grin)

As a general advice I'd like to remind y'all:

Don't forget the tips I have given in the accompanying ReadMe, especially the one about the Westside and Eastside, and - also very important - use your ears as well as your eyes !!

One more hint:  there are at least 2 completely secret rooms....whose entrances are not easy to find. But once you found them, it gives you that extra-satisfying feeling of being something like the first explorer to set foot on those grounds !!

Yes, we are all busy playing LCR!  Very fun mansion with some new twists.  I came to another dead end and decided to give it a rest for a couple days.  Sometimes that helps. In the meantime I'm playing Doldrum Dungeon and am stuck in that one too.   Lips Sealed

You got it !!!

Been Enjoying LCR on my free hour each day since it was released. Great mansion, with lots of your trademark devious passages, and some fun new stuff.  Lots to explore.  

I found the mansion actually got easier the farther in Jack went, with the save pedestals seeming closer together.  For my Jack it was I think between save 2 and 3 that we had the hardest time, and couldn't wait to see that all important pedestal! Cheesy

Finished yesterday with 82 %, and will be going back in with a bigger flashlight today to find those two secret rooms!!! Smiley

Thanks so much aquaMat for creating a new place for us to 'get lost in'!

Great mansion ,but finished with only 84% explored. I found the way through without much trouble as I took advice to look and listen.
I cannot begin to imagine where the two secret rooms are so lots of fun trying later.
Thanks for a well thought mansion with a very nice layout

@ everybody:

Thanks for all the nice comments !!
I can assure you that an average 82 % is really quite good for a first try....so you're all pretty much "in the top range" so far !

As with my other mansions, LCR is constructed in such a way that it's almost impossible to find everything during the first visit.... but that way it offers more fun and surprises for repeated plays !!

That's quite correct !!  I feel the hardest parts are - say - between the start and save 2 or 3....and then again towards the end.

I created that central area with at least 1 save more than usual to counterbalance the hard beginning, and also to give Jack some time to rest.   Cheesy   Wink

Hi All !

Went back with Jack's biggest flashlight, and found not only the two secret rooms, but another one that was well hidden and quite fun to conquer. Smiley

Finished the mansion for now, Jack needs a bit of rest after this adventure!  Smiley

Thanks aquaMat for the wonderful time, and hope to see more of your stuff soon!

Ehh, I was playing LCR.

Interesting, I got lost so much-- I kept running out of lives and was dying to save in room 19699 but I couldn't figure out how to get onto it.  Undecided

@SandyBean:


I'm pretty impressed with your final "figures".... 90% is pretty good, and I'm especially impressed with your 23 lives left...  Wink  Cheesy

And thanks for the nice words !!

@Wingy:

Semi-Native has pretty much explained it already...ha ha (=devious laugh)  Cheesy   Wink   just look around carefully !
