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.

Hi aquamat,

I played the Void, really enjoyed it, especially all the hunting for secret entrances to rooms, took a while.  Very clever.

I understand what you mean about forum response, I too was very disappointed about the tiny bit of feedback I received from my one and only mansion; Immortal Ruins.  I spent a huge amount of time and energy on it, and it seems it was a flop.  Oh well, such is life sometimes.   Cry

Keep up the great mansion building, looking forward to the Four Tubes.

Thanks a lot for the nice words, Sandy...!

I can assure you that Immortal Ruins was not a flop, at least not in my book..... I remember very well how much I liked playing it.

It did have a very high "exploring factor", too... due to its non-linearity, and as far as I recall, did also feature quite a few innovations !!!

Beta-testing is now finished and I'm currently doing version 1.0 (which will be the official "release version").

The only thing left to be done is set the music IDs.

And here I want to do the following (I know there will be a few players out there who might protest):

You know my preferance to play without (the supplied) music, and given the nature of THE FOUR TUBES, with all the exploring etc., I'd like to release the official version as a SILENT MANSION (=music set to -1 /off).

It will enhance the effect, believe me.

Should there be players out there who absolutely need the (MM-)music (and who are still not tired of hearing the same 4 pieces time and again) of course I cannot prevent you from using the editor to change the music IDs.  But I'd rather see you not do it......
(You can as well turn on your stereo while playing !)

So I invite an open discussion here, about the music..... to find out how many players really feel they need this music.
But unless there will be a majoritiy of you asking me not to do it, I will release The Four Tubes as a silent, but very atmospheric mansion, full of suspense... animal noises, footsteps, blood dripping sounds..... !

No music is fine with me.

For the longest time when I first started playing MM, I did not have ANY sound on, as the SE's would make my young puppy thingy his ears and if Jack died, Murphy would really seem upset.   Huh

Now I play with the SE's at low volume, and the music even lower.  Murphy, and our now new puppy, Shasta, have become quite indifferent to the noises, and believe me, being able to hear the monsters and such is a great help to keep Jack alive. Roll Eyes

The music to me is not important, and even distracting at times when it changes between rooms and delays the play.  I think your mansion will be great as a silent, eerie space, with all kinds of trouble waiting for Jack! Shocked

Looking forward to playing it !

thanks,
SandyBean Smiley

I often play without music too (but not always).

What about having a music track mostly silent, but with occasional creepy noises (doors creaking, spooky laughter, footsteps, things like that)?
