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!

You can never escape! The map changes frequently, and the ladders leading outside on the first level feel like they are programed so you'll never be able to access them -- be it a hidden pit to a lower level, or guarded by gate will never open (I might just be running out of keys by the time I get to them; would be nice to have something that helps track them)!


davidmaletz responds:

You are correct, all ladders are blocked on the first floor. If you're going to escape, you're going to have to break through common sense and make a ladder that was once unreachable, reachable (and it's not going to be as easy as using a key)! Or you can go the easier path, and see how deep you can go!

I dont get how this is scary. is there a monster after some point or something? also, i see how your using the grid for motion, but it feels so clunky and awkward to walk/turn like that...

ugh

I wanted to be scared, I wanted to be. But, all you do is wander around. One time, i saw an eye staring at me from a wall, that was interesting, but that was the ONLY thing I saw while down there. Nothing worth running from, by the time I'd randomly fallen down into the 7th hole on the ground, I was done. There was nothing happening. What was the point? Can you at least tell me that? Was I missing something here?

The sound/music were very good but the playability needs work. No minimap?!? Also, the controls were rigid but maybe I'm just spoiled with all the freedom I get in other games I play.

You have the most important aspect - the atmosphere. You can't really learn that but you can learn the other stuff (ie the control stuff). Good luck with your next game!


davidmaletz responds:

In this game, you're supposed to get lost (that's part of it's atmosphere), so maps and navigation controls would actually be counter-productive to the game.
