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/flas hplayer/ .

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!

The game was funny I saw a black phantom for the first time and actually got scared..4 stars because the controls feel too stiff it would be better to be able to look around with the mouse and to move with WASD.

I'm giving it a four because the game and graphics were absolutely addicting. The knocked off star is because it doesn't have WASD compatibility and no pause button. With ghosts wandering about and I go to do something I notice I am knocked down a few floors because I couldn't pause. Simple gameplay mechanics break the whole thing mate.

It's pretty funny the things a developer can miss! A pause button and WASD support would've been great, along with strafing using Q/E. Keep in mind, I only had a month to make this game for the OneGameAMonth Challenge, but I definitely overlooked those! Thanks for the suggestions, if I have a chance to revise it or make a sequel, these will definitely be added!

The fact that sometimes you fall through the ground somewhat forbids any kind of game experience. There is no possibility of methodically exploring the labyrinth, thus making this a "walk around randomly while enjoying the atmosphere and the scenery kind of game". The problem is that there is no scenery and little atmosphere, due to the repetitiveness of everything and the harmlessness of monsters. All in all, I think it needs a lot more work.

Was this inspired by a Lands of Lore game? Felt like LoL2 in my opinion. Because of the music, perhaps.

Best of luck with your projects.
