Midnight Mansion HD can now be downloaded and purchased directly from ActionSoft, without the need to purchase via the Mac App Store:
If you are an owner of the original Midnight Mansion, you can get a free registration code for Episode 2 by using this form:
The ActionSoft version of the game contains both Episodes 1 and 2 in one download, so both can be unlocked, depending on what registration code you purchase. The version is also compatible with the version you can purchase from the Mac App Store, so if you purchase one Episode there, and another on ActionSoft, both will link just as you’d expect.
Please note: the version on ActionSoft is a 1.0.1 update to the game that fixes a lot of bugs. Once you run this version, the original 1.0.0 version will not launch. (Meaning, if you currently have a Mac App Store version on your computer, that version won’t launch after you run the ActionSoft website version, until Apple posts my 1.0.1 update.) This isn’t really a problem, because the ActionSoft version will allow you to play anything you purchased via the Mac App Store. But just be aware that after launching the 1.0.1 version, you won’t be able to run the old 1.0.0 version.
