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!

You build a really great atmosphere and I have to say my first go at this game gave me a really great impression. However, the following playthroughs weren't that good. You soon realise that once you fall beyond the third floor it's just better to start over. Also, you should make it clearer what the keys do, how many you've collected and such. It would help they player feel like he's making progress and will make it that more heartbreaking when you fall >:D
You might also want to add some other feature to make the player feel like he's doing some progress. But maybe the feeling of wandering aimlessly and not getting anything except more lost was the thing you were going for. That has its charm too!
Not a big fan of the fake gates though. All other holes and such can be avoided but the fake gates just randomly resets all your progress. Not a feature I am a fan of but then again maybe you were going for the frustration of being locked away and just maybe able to escape.

On one hand i have to give you credit for making a game in 3d. You don't see that often on this site
It also reminded me of old games like daggerfall or eye of the beholder.
On the other hand it's not very scary once you've played it more then once and realize the ghost
can't hurt you.

Very atmospheric game. I did get chills when I first saw a ghost, the red-eyed specter rising from a pit, and when I dropped to deeper levels with different music. Unfortunately I did get bored after a little while, and decided to chase ghosts and see what you find at the bottom of the dungeon. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed in the ending down there. Would have been nice if you could come up with something a bit less terminal, but I guess it fits the game. Reading a few other reviews, it seems that the map is being generated on the fly, and doesn't remain fixed - this actually makes me more likely to try again, since it means I won't feel tempted to make a map, which would be REALLY dull.
