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!

Very nice. LOVE the atmosphere and the graphics aren't half bad. Maintains a good creepy atmosphere and gave me several jumpscares. Really immersive. However, I'm almost positive that the game can't be won because I figured that the only way out is at the beginning where you spawn, in front of the locked door with the ladder on the other side. I actually got a key and went back to the spawn point to unlock the door but it wouldn't open, so I don't think that door is actually supposed to open and you just can't get out. Also sometimes I fall through the ground even though I KNOW there wasn't a hole there that I could see (the round black spots on the ground). Might just be the game trolling me, I dunno. Either way, good game!

It's odd, but the eyes on the wall at first were disturbing, but as I played they almost became a comfort, knowing I wasn't completely alone down there.

Assuming it was the goal, I fell as far as I could until I was trapped between 4 locked doors. I was almost glad to just lose and be done with it. Not "terrifying" but nothing I'd want to play for more than a short while without a break (though it clearly has addictive properties to it).

Reading some of the comments (plus the title) I assume the game is endless, or is at least it's one of those "Slender" type games that gives you an addictive puzzle to solve with little reward for solving it. This isn't a bad thing, just not something I enjoy at length.

Good Game though.

Good game, overall. Graphics and music are top notch and the atmosphere is really good. However:
- Those hidden pits are pure evil. They're nearly invisible and there's nothing in-game that could possibly reveal their existence to the player. That means a lot of undeserved punishment and frustration for newcomers.
- The ghosts are even worse than the invisible pits. They have the tendency to pop-up on you passing through walls, often when you are mid-movement, and the player can't possibly prevent it any way. I think they would be better as atmospheric effects rather than enemies.
- The gameplay lacks urgency, which would increase tension and, in my opinion, will make the gameplay better.

great now go with a dungeon hack - eye of the beholder version

monster slashing and fireball trowing! IT'S ADVENTURE TIME!

Haha, I was definitely going for that retro-3D dungeon look - and they're both randomly generated too! I strongly recommend Lands of Lore as well, it's a great retro-3D RPG.

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.
