Maniac Mansion Mania is a fangame series created by fans of Maniac Mansion that revives and expands this historic video game. The series has an episodic structure, so that each developer can contribute with his own story to the Maniac Mansion universe.
Maniac Apartment is the second "international" Maniac Mansion Mania episode, after 'Britney's Escape'. This episode, in fact, was born as a "stand-alone" fangame too before becoming part of the MMM series.
