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

Vern, Jacob and the rest of you may want to take a look at The Dalton Brothers, which is a MM1 custom mansion with 4 Jacks in one room, and Identical Twins which is also a MM1 custom mansion but never got approved.  In this mansion there are two Jacks exploring more than a one room, which leads to some interesting complications.  I know that the Jill concept is not quite the same but these mansions may give you some ideas.

I think a good idea is being able to switch between characters while playing, but when I mean switch characters, I mean they're both in the same room so you will have to watch out for the other character, it would be good for puzzles where one character has to stand on a switch to open a door but if he/she gets off, the door closes.

I got this idea from the last part of the Anju and Kafei Quest in Majora's Mask

As far as Jill, maybe something like the blue-haired troll. I already checked out the builder to see if I could get the troll to retrieve a key. He can't, but that would be how to do a Jill. She can retrieve keys, money etc.

why cant it be like you can unlock people by doing certain things.
such as:

-completing certain mansions in certain difficulties
-beating the game in a certain difficulty

and you can unlock costumes for them by:

-completing certain mansions in certain difficulties as i said above
-geting a certain total amount of money(based on the amount of money you collect in mansions and only grows if you get a higher amount of money in that mansion)
-finding enough secrets in a mansion
-beating the game in a certain difficulty
etc.

I would suggest for things like that you get rewards such as different hats for the main character or clothing for the main character, but that would require a lot of work from the artist.

Maybe you could choose which character you wanted to play with in the menu? I like the idea of accessories, although I really feel it shouldn't impact the gameplay too much. And maybe instead of playing as two characters in the same mansion you could play the mansion each time with a different character to get a different play experience. For example you could have it that Jack can get help from trolls, and Jill could climb a special type of ladder. Or maybe you could have some other characters, such as Jack's children perhaps? Or Gus?

In fact a goblin hero would be an interesting companion in my opinion. And there would be less work for the artist due to a lot of the Goblin's animations being finished.

There are lots of ways this could branch out. Such as multiplayer. I have played with my friends on this game, and every time we die, we switch out. Going by this idea you could have it so that you have a team of characters, that would switch out when you died? Or maybe through an online connection you could play a mansion with another person. There could even be special multiplayer mansions which would have you on one floor and your friend on the other.

Just a few of my ideas
