Midnight Mansion 2 – Free or Pay?

Monday, August 30th, 2010

I’ve been asked this question a number of times, so I thought I’d address it from the blog. Some owners of the original Midnight Mansion would like to know if they must pay the $25 price for Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills.

Midnight Mansion 2 is an entirely new game with new enemies, new environments, new music, new puzzles, and new mansions. It took about a year and a half to develop. Most of the people purchasing it will be fans of the original game. So if I were to release it as a free or discounted upgrade for owners of the first game, I’d not be making enough to continue being able to support myself doing game development. I’d have to get a full-time job, which means there would be no future Midnight Mansion sequels.

So the short answer to the question is, yes, the $25 price is required for anyone who wants to purchase Midnight Mansion 2, since it’s an entirely new game. I think though that most who try the free demo of Midnight Mansion 2 will agree it’s worth every penny. :-)

However, minor bug-fixing updates to the original game will continue to be released, and as always, are free.
