For all you readers who are unfamiliar with the term oubliette, an oubliette is one of the most grueling types of dungeons known to man. An oubliette is a specific type of dungeon that has only one escape route — through a trapdoor in its ceiling. An oubliette is very well constructed from the captor’s point of view. With the only entrance and exit being in the ceiling far above where the prisoner stands, escape is pretty much impossible.
Oubliette: A Forgotten Little Place takes place in a castle inspired by Leap Castle— the famed “most haunted castle in Ireland”. Legend has it that the remains from over 150 bodies were rolled out in wheelbarrows in the 1920s. A pocket watch from the mid-1800s revealed how recent the oubliette had claimed victims.
