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/brell was updated on 19. Nov 2023 to add a fourth section. Available here

Jack stuck?

Please see the attached screen shot. Jack can't find his way out of where he is. Am I missing something?

Thanks. This mansion has a lot of surprises! Loving it.

how did you get there if you can't get out? The only possible way should be to go back the way you came, considering the state of the room. How else did you get in there if not from the right of where you're standing right now?

It seems you managed to avoid pulling a lever, I thought levers were impossible to resist, should have made the lever do things one of the floor switches does to avoid this Smiley

Strange, I actually remade this room to avoid this situation Smiley

Fixed it, sent an update to the admins

Jack jumped in there somehow, from the right when he got to the top of the ladder.

I'm an admin now, too, and I uploaded your mansion, so you could have sent it directly to me. Just for future reference.

it's not hard to jump in there from the right, but you can't get further without pulling the lever

and now it seems too late for that Smiley

I sent the update to you too, then

I quote myself:

"Never ever assume that the player will play your mansion in the way you intended.  If there is a strange/stupid/whatever play that a player can do be sure that someone eventually will make that play. Remember that the player cannot know beforehand that the play will lead to JS or cd."

We had a JS in this room during beta, but this other one seems to have slipped through Smiley

your quote is always worth mentioning Smiley

Olle, sorry to tell you this, but once again, Jack got stuck in the very same spot. This time, he came down from above and fell into the same area. Since he hadn't been to the area where he could pull that lever yet, once again he's stuck.

I think the problem lies in the fact that when Jack falls, instead of dying, a lot of times he ends up sliding down a pole, and ends up in an area that you hadn't intended.

Maybe the solution is doing away with having to pull that lever to get out of there?

but now you really have to tell me how you managed to fall all the way down there and not die?

please describe the situation, since I cannot make him fall from above, nor the side, into that spot... without dying trying

This mansion is made to be exactly as you describe, if he falls he is supposed to survive and be able to explore something else, or need to go back to try again

but not survive when falling to his death, as this should be

I didn't want to say exactly how Jack got there because I didn't want to give away anything, so I'll PM you.
