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!

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 (
escape/news/can-you-escape), was I able to win.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Definatly worth playing. Somewhat more scary stuff would make it even better for me. I don't want sick, disturbing stuff poppin' up on my screen that scares me so much I throw my laptop through the window and go sit in a foetus position for 2 weeks, but a little more in that direction would make it great.
One other thought: you give the option to play with the mouse but it makes gameplay so much sloppyer in comparison with playing with the arrow keys. I think it's better not giving that option at all.
