Midnight Mysteries: Haunted Houdini

A Houdini videogame, Midnight Mysteries: Haunted Houdini, has been released for PC platforms by Mumbo Jumbo and Big Fish Games. It appears the game was first released as a Beta download in November 2011, but it's now available in a nice package with dramatic cover art (left).

I'm not finding a listing on Amazon just yet, but a seller on eBay has copies for a Buy It Now price of $21.99 (which, of course, could mean that it's not officially released yet).

Below is a YouTube video showing the gameplay. Looks pretty cool! You know, I've been wondering why we hadn't seen a Houdini videogame yet? I wonder no more.



UPDATE: You can now download this game for play on your PC from Big Fish Games.

  1. Despite being made for kids, a lot of Big Fish's games are actually a lot of fun. They have lots of atmosphere. I play them for the beautiful art, but sometimes the story is pretty good too.

    1. Good to know. The art looks pretty terrific in this, and it looks like they've done their homework as far as Houdini's house is concerned, etc.

  2. Big Fish games are not for kids!

  3. They recently released this as an app so it can be played on the Kindle. I bought, played, and beat it as I adore this type of game! It was very well done and reignited the flame of my fascination with Houdini. That game, in a roundabout way, was what led me to your magnificent website! If you get the chance, I recommend checking out the game. Lastly, thank you for all you do here and making me fall in love with all things Houdini.
