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!

I really love it. I think it's great that this was made for January's 1GAM. From one developer to another, this is fantastic.

Thanks a lot! 1GAM has been great in helping me to actually finish and release games - I have so many ideas planned! Look forward to my February game! Are you participating in 1GAM as well? What was your January game?

Thanks to a youtube video, not to be advertised but to give credit to, Tyler H, apparently you have to descend, ascend, descend, ascend, and then walk into all of the red X's on the walls until you find the secret ladder to escape. And this is an awesome game! :D

I admit it , I'm a coward.

After wandering the top level, plunging down numerous floors and seeing a pale white figure, I just NOPE'd right out of there.

Overall: 10/10! Great job with the ambience, too.
