Made by RDK

Down the Oubliette is a dungeon crawler for people who like tower defense games. Take on the ghost infestation below an abandoned country house.


  • Play through 4 randomized levels to get rid of all the ghosts.
  • Use 4 different towers: beacon, coil, fan, and torch.
  • Configure the game to play with one hand.
  • Replay a floor as often as you need to. There’s no permadeath.
  • Use ghost energy to build and upgrade towers but manage your resources well to not get stuck.


  • Show new notes with hints immediately or add them to the notebook to check later.
  • Mark spirits hidden in the dark with a question mark for fewer surprises.
  • Use the crank to activate fan towers or activate them automatically.
  • Hold the B button to turn around or toggle turning with the B button.
  • Reset progress and remove unlocked content from the notebook to allow a second player to start fresh.
