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!

I figured it out! Well.. Somewhat...

Here are some hints that might help other people out (They are cryptic so don't worry about spoilers):

At first I thought they did nothing, but after a while I realised that they did do something. However it was not always what I wanted them to do...

The defenition of insanity truly fits this dungeon well...

And finally, sometimes you have to see how deep the rabit hole goes. Don't fear the dark. They true key to succes is deeper than you might think...

That's it. I will keep on playing for now.

its a pity requires 3d hardware (like when you are under linux with non-supported drivers)

Attempt 1- lots of random wandering, falling through hidden pitfalls until I got stuck.
Attempt 2- Time to play smart, I learned what the hidden pitfalls looked like and was easily able to navigate this treacherous labyrinth without dropping down any floors. So I wander around the starting floor for about 20 minutes when I noticed that the map changes despite taking the same route between 2 points. Another 10 or so minutes of wandering and I find out that the keys do nothing, you can find a locked door pick up a nearby key try again but the door remains locked. "I'm onto you buddy, rearranging mazes and useless keys, it's all designed to throw the player off, but I'm not gonna fall for your tricks so easily, I will complete this game". Aaaaand cue 30 minutes of wandering around finding all ladders either blocked by pitfalls or unopenable gates. I don't know if this is just difficult to complete and involves getting lucky and finding the correct ladder or if you are trying to screw people over with a game that can't be beat. If it's the former than shame on you, if it's the latter than I guess you accomplished your goal spectacularly, because determined and driven by some deranged completionist compulsion I may be, but a winner I am not.

You are correct, all ladders are blocked on the first floor. If you're going to escape, you're going to have to break through common sense and make a ladder that was once unreachable, reachable!
