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 COMPLEX:  Another aquaMat mansion coming soon
25.05.2009 at 21:47:57
 
Dear friends,

I like to announce that Rose and myself are currently beta-testing my latest creation. During design and testing it used to have the working title "Matt's Maze", but I plan to release it very soon under the official name of

                                             
THE COMPLEX


It is no "real maze" but it is in fact a huge complex of aisles, corridors, tubes and shafts where it is very easy to get lost in.
It also has my usual share of "secret passages" etc., but I consider it to be a little easier than my last few mansions.

What's great about it (I hope): after a pretty linear beginning (on icy mountains) Jack is headin' underground into The Complex, where the player can pretty much decide freely where he wants to go next.

There are "many roads leading to Rome" so to speak, and even the order of the save pedestals is not necessarily fixed.

At times it gets linear again (without really noticing it the player is softly "guided" towards a certain direction, after all) and of course especially near the end.
However, it should provide fun for repeated plays (as I always intend my mansions to do), 'cause there are several hidden things or rooms etc. which probably won't be discovered the first time through.

Another feature that make repeated plays interesting is the fact that every game will be a bit different, as noted above.

There will be more than enough save points and a bit more money as usual to avoid frustration.

Look forward....it won't be long anymore (at least not on my side)...we're currently testing version 0.9.x !


PS: Thanks to Rose for her invaluable help in beta-testing.

Hi aquaMat,

I am sooooo looking forward to another one of your mansions!  They are always great with some hard to find escape passages, new tricks for my Jack to learn, and wonderful, creative graphics!

Thanks so much to You aquaMat, and Your creative genius, and also to Rose for beta testing.

My Jack says;  "Yahoo" to You for making us a new playground.   Smiley

Although me and Jack are still getting a 'stress relief' from OTG's "Torture Chambers" (Luris).......... and I know you guys wonder how this could be, but you don't know how truly Stressful my real 'work day' stuff is!!!!

Thanks so much, and keep up the fantastic stuff we and Jack both  thrive on,

SandyBean Smiley

Wow. Thank you all for those nice, encouraging words !
Makes me very happy !   Smiley

BTW: Rose just pointed out that I might be giving away a bit too much with this sreenshot, as it possibly spoils some of the surprises (at least for those who study that shot thoroughly and then manage to remember all the details until the official release !  Wink)

But I doubt that there are too many of you now sitting with a magnifying glass in front of the screen ?!

However, I might replace the screenshot with a less revealing one, later today !

One year I spoiled my own Christmas by snooping into the presents my parents bought. It was the worst Christmas ever- I wasn't getting what I "ordered" AND I knew about it. The gifts weren't bad, just not my first choice (which was probably a pony  Grin )

The moral of that story, Grasshoppers? Sometimes the surprize is part of the fun  Wink  Smiley
