The Oil Lamp is an item available to the player on Alone in the Dark (1992) and Alone in the Dark 3.


In Alone in the Dark (1992), the player can find this item in the Loft, where the game begins, sitting on the table next to the protagonist.

In both Alone in the Dark (1992) and Alone in the Dark 3, it is used to illuminate dark places, wherever their location might be.

In the first game, it is used for the last time when Carnby throws the burning lantern at Pregzt, killing him.

In the third game, Carnby keeps the Oil Lamp until he loses it after his first death and resurrection, or until the player (although not recommended) drops it.


  • In the horror game The Evil Within, after a certain point in the game, Sebastian becomes able to wield an oil lamp. Its appearance seems roughly based off Alone in the Dark's.
  • In the edition of The Mystery Examiner released with the first Alone in the Dark there is the advertising of the oil lamp, called Lux Wonderlamp.
