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.

Insectoid promotion - need your help!
22.12.2009 at 13:52:05
 
As you all may know, Insectoid was released Nov. 4th. I've tried to promote the game as best as I can, but it still seems few people know about it -- the number of downloads on the various download sites is very very low. For instance, Download.com generated a mere 26 downloads for Insectoid *since its release*.

I was hoping to wait until end users played the game, and get excited about it and post reviews on the various sites, but since practically no one seems to even know about the game, this isn't happening. I could use some help just getting star ratings started on the various sites. Here are links to a few of Insectoid's listings below. If you have a few minutes, it would help me out a ton if you could create a user account at one of the sites below, and post a star rating / review of Insectoid. (Obviously I'm hoping for the best rating they allow, to encourage new users to download the game, but you can post whatever you think is appropriate.)

If you do, post here which site you did this on, and maybe someone else will post to one of the others. of course, the more the merrier.

Sure, will do.

But I still say, youtube is a great place to market your games.

Already done.

And when I release the Midnight Mansion sequel, I will do a YouTube trailer for it too.

A suggestion tho......you should provide a link to the Action Soft web site in the "more info" section at the top right corner where the description is written by the poster.

And the link should be above the other links.  Easy access.  

Also, search engine words are sooooo important.  Your header is:  Insectoid - Trailer - PC/MAC"  Perhaps adding the word game after Mac might help.  So if someone googles Mac Games, this would pop up.
The fact that you have PC/MAC might be missed by google search, if you know what I mean.

When I google Secret Societies.....I do not get a lot of great stuff on youtube, because the posters gave the videos specific titles, which does not show up in the search engines.  Do you understand my point?

Just my opinion.
