Oubliette originated in 1977 as a multi-user dungeon played on mainframe computers of the PLATO system. The game was inspired by Mines of Moria, written around 1974/1975 by Chuck Miller and others. Mines of Moria was a single-player game, but already had the wireframe 3D graphics that are known from Ultima or Wizardry. Together with DND, Mines of Moria was one of the first computer role-playing games ever.
