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 see what you did there. Make a shitty game that just wastes my time. Falling through floors, pale white figures. OOOOOoooooooh. That sucked the gay right out of Freddie Mercury's ass.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I played all the Slender games in the dark, I played Amnesia multiple times in the dark.

Thinking, "How scary can a Newgrounds game be?"

I failed to play this game with the lights ON.
The second the ghostly apparition appeared, the eyes started staring and the demon came from the ground? I had to NOPE.jpeg my way out of the site and came back to write this!

Honestly, very good job man, from a MASSIVE horror fan, scariest fucking shit I have ever played. It gave me goosebumbs!

Great game, but if you want to play it in a window and not full screen, the orientation is messed up. You end up facing the walls while walking.
