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!

davidmaletz responds:

I'm glad you like it! We're still doing smaller updates for the sequel on steam - in fact I should be posting a big sfx update tomorrow. The steam sequel is much better than the flash version, so I hope you'll give it a try :).
As for the way to escape - it was more of an easter egg than an actual ending. I also think it's pretty incredible people figured it out :P.

Hah, i beat it, Pretty crazy game. i feel like it punishes you every time you don't pay attention. Was for sure i was gonna cry that last game... Great game though, very... Labrithy, wish there was like something chasing you though, to force a rush.

Really enjoyed the graphics you went for but what really set the mood for this game was definitely the music. As you fall deeper and deeper the music intensifies which really sets the feeling of hopelessness.
