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!

I finished it, but I don't get it. I suppose you have to end up on the 2nd floor in order to get keys on the first and then the X teleports you to where the finish is, but the sequence is just odd.

Can't replicate the result without trial and error and the ending was not worth the 2+ hours spent trying to figure it out.

Yeah, the secret ending is very tough to get (even if you know the trick). Vannius suggested a great idea for how I could make escaping more logical, if still challenging. What the game's really about though is going deeper and seeing how deep and dark the cavern gets!

interesting game, however the fact that u can only win when u are in the first level make it hard to keep goin if u fall often, when u go down its very frightening and very good part of the game but why would u go far down when your objective is on the first level, remember your objetive on the game is to escape,and the last part i spent more than one hour trying to finish the game thinking at least in the end all my efforts will not be in vain, sad end just go out end see a screen with end game , at least make a final joke like he fall in another hole. btw great environment .

davidmaletz responds:

I "think" this is because it's trying to launch the game in fullscreen, and your browser is blocking that in a way it can't detect (maybe a popup blocker?). Try the adobe air version: http://www.indiedb.com/games/i-cant-escape/downloads/i-cant-escape-air , or try another browser.
