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!

Thanks to a youtube video, not to be advertised but to give credit to, Tyler H, apparently you have to descend, ascend, descend, ascend, and then walk into all of the red X's on the walls until you find the secret ladder to escape. And this is an awesome game! :D

What program did you use to make the game?


davidmaletz responds:

I used Flash Develop, it's all as3 and Stage3D. The code's a little messy since it was made in one month, but it's all available open source here: https://github.com/davidmaletz/CantEscape!

Ok, sneaky guys. The damn maze changes. Makes it a LITTLE hard to solve the thing. Props on the graphics and atmosphere, but if you're gonna make a puzzle, give it a solution.
