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!

Pretty good game. It's genuinely scary, the overall ambience is great. Truly you must understand the human mind.

I was a little disappointed with the trick you need to figure out in order to win. Some of it makes a certain amount of sense, in fact I came pretty close to winning all by myself. But the last thing makes no sense. Only thanks to the walk-through you linked before (http://www.indiedb.com/games/i-cant-
escape/news/can-you-escape), was I able to win.

Works perfectly on win 8 here (using opera).

The game itself didn't kept me captivated too long but it has that nice retro feel :)

I question whether this was a game or a clever interactive metaphor for having depression. It was really good to begin with for what it is, I still like it, but as far as I can tell there is no real solution which kind of makes the entire game a waste of time considering all you do it walk around. Good game if you just want something simple with a creepy atmosphere, not a good game if you are capable of experiencing frustration or like solving puzzles. Because while it appears to be a puzzle, with the amount of time I spent playing this, no...apparently not gonna happen.

Reminds me a lot of that old Windows 98 3d maze screensaver.
