You have fallen into a vast underground maze. Can you find your way out, or will you end up trapped in darkness forever?

We recommend playing in a dimly lit room with your speaker or headphone volume turned up. It's best to play I Can't Escape late at night, as it is an eerie exploration experience.

Troubleshooting: This game requires flash player 11+. If you don't have flash player 11, the game will tell you, and you should download it (for free) here: .

If you get the error "requires 3D hardware rendering," that means it's not running on your graphics card for some reason. Try right clicking the game, clicking settings, and make sure "enable hardware acceleration" is checked in the display tab, then refresh the page. If that doesn't work, try updating your graphics card driver or your flash player version.

If you're using windows 8, cheese123 mentioned to me that he couldn't get the game to run unless he ran chrome in windows 8 mode. If you're using windows 8 and having trouble, you can try that and see if it makes a difference. Thanks a lot to cheese123!

If you are still having trouble playing the game, feel free to send me a PM!

i clicked on this expecting a usual point and click escape game, and was pleasantly surprised to find a really neat horror game! when it went fullscreen, i knew i was in for a treat.

i thought i was doing pretty good, (mabye SPOILER) dodging the holes on the ground and finding hidden paths in the walls (end maybe SPOILER), but i died...

one thing that bothered me is that i collected about 3 keys and none of them worked on anything? or, mabye they did and i didnt realize it.

anyways, great game!!! 10/10, would reccomend. i died, but im gonna go play it again! :D

Sorry but this doesn't work. When I click 'Begin' it goes fullscreen and just stays black. I'm using Flash Player 11.2 on Ubuntu, not sure if that makes a difference.

This was pretty spooky, especially the parts with the ghosts, red-eyed shadow monsters, the eyeballs opening up in the walls, and the seemingly inability to escape. This all makes for a game that is awesome in my opinion. Fantastic job!

I'm glad you like it! We're still doing smaller updates for the sequel on steam - in fact I should be posting a big sfx update tomorrow. The steam sequel is much better than the flash version, so I hope you'll give it a try :).
As for the way to escape - it was more of an easter egg than an actual ending. I also think it's pretty incredible people figured it out :P.
