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.

The Four Tubes

Dear friends,

I seem to be in a flow at the moment.... and even though "The Void" didn't seem to cause much "response" by the community I'm about to finish yet another new custom mansion.

Its working title is
THE FOUR TUBES
 and on the included overview you can see why. I have the feeling it's one of my best, really..... and it's about the only mansion that I designed on a sheet of paper before I started building (at least the overall structure), whereas all my earlier mansions were created "on the spot"....

In this manssion, that also features a few smaller custom design elements, Jack will have to travel through four tubes leading to different sections, and he is completely free to chose which tube he wants to start with, so exploration factor is high.

I will need at least one or two more weeks to finish it and have it tested properly..... but you can already have a glimpse at the picture below (which shows only the main section).

The Four Tubes looks really good! BTW, I liked The Void (or at least the parts I could get through. For me, this one was very hard  Tongue )

Thank you all for your kind words, especially the comments about The Void.

Maybe I got the wrong impression there.....  if a mansion doesn't create much "post traffic" it doesn't have to mean that noone is playing it.... maybe it just means that there's not too much wrong with it  Wink .....

....or it was simply too hard ??   Grin

The Four Tubes won't be as hard BTW..... but it isn't necessarily easy either !

I think real life just gets in the way sometimes. People are too busy to post, probably.

Really looking forward to the Four Tubes, it looks excellent!
Cool

Thank you, thank you, evyrbody...!

Last night I finished the last room of The Four Tubes....but now I still will need a couple of days to put in all those nice exztra touches, like additional creatures, backgrounds, props, statues, paintings etc..

Also I will have to play and play and play again myself (as I always do before handing it over to the testers) to find any faults, weak spots or anything that could be improved.

The greatest thing about this mansion really is its non-linearity.... being free to chose which tube (=route) to start with each time you play results in the strange effect that the save pedestals have no fixed order (and change according to your route-choice).

And - paradoxically - even though there is this liberating non-linearity there is also a lot of symmetry in it.....  which you will find out only later (so I should stop giving things away now).  Cheesy   Wink
