Midnight Manor is a short narrative-driven "pick-em-up" platformer inspired by games like Bible Adventures, Super Mario Bros 2, and Lakeview Cabin Collection.

It follows the story of a man down on his luck, who happens to find himself at the doorstep of a luxurious manor as a terrible storm surges outside. Greeted by a generous, but lonely, old man - he's offered shelter in exchange for completing some simple tasks during his stay.

So... enter the Midnight Manor. Explore its winding hallways. Fulfill your piece of the bargain, and enjoy a night of luxury sheltered from the churning storm outside.

This game is still in active development. It's been made available early to help refine and improve the quality of the game as it nears completion. Be aware that some bugs will exist and I will do my best to fix them in a timely manner. Thanks so much for your support and I hope you enjoy the game!
