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: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ .

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!

Great Ambiance, great music, but i' confused about those shadows with the red eyes, u can just ignore them. And that video guide link doesn't work anymore and i can't find another walkthru how to beat it xD
The game is kinda wasted on me i guess. But i like the idea


davidmaletz responds:

The link's not broken, there's just an extra space in there (newgrounds adds it for security reasons I think). Delete the space, and you should be able to see the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8mw9azY9qk . As for the shadow with red eyes, it's meant to give you pause, and make you wonder if you should really do what you're about to do!

a good and scary game. is there a reason that it goes into auto-fullscreen everytime i click on it to move?


davidmaletz responds:

The game is meant to be played in fullscreen, and in many browsers (firefox included), it is not playable in windowed mode, so that's why it always returns to fullscreen when you click. If you want, however, in chrome you can play the game with arrow keys in windowed mode (just don't click the screen, and it wont go to fullscreen).

Pretty good game. It's genuinely scary, the overall ambience is great. Truly you must understand the human mind.

I was a little disappointed with the trick you need to figure out in order to win. Some of it makes a certain amount of sense, in fact I came pretty close to winning all by myself. But the last thing makes no sense. Only thanks to the walk-through you linked before (http://www.indiedb.com/games/i-cant-
escape/news/can-you-escape), was I able to win.
