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 lost on the first try, beat it on the second.

Here's all I know folks:

Always check the ground before you walk. Pitfalls and keys are easy to notice. Hidden pitfalls will have an inconspicuous gathering of plant matter that, if you look closely, is covering a hole. Most easily found ladders will have hidden pitfalls!

I won the game by picking up a key and walking into one of those walls that has a red gash on it. It teleported me right next to an untrapped ladder. Some of those walls make a locked door sound when you try to back into them. Trying this trick on other wall types may make you drop down a level.

Anyway, the game isn't terrifyingly scary, but it is unnervingly scary. The atmosphere and feeling of helplessness is spot on. Falling into the darker and more degraded parts of the dungeon, seeing stranger and scarier things, is an absolutely horrible experience (in a good way).

Very atmospheric game. I did get chills when I first saw a ghost, the red-eyed specter rising from a pit, and when I dropped to deeper levels with different music. Unfortunately I did get bored after a little while, and decided to chase ghosts and see what you find at the bottom of the dungeon. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed in the ending down there. Would have been nice if you could come up with something a bit less terminal, but I guess it fits the game. Reading a few other reviews, it seems that the map is being generated on the fly, and doesn't remain fixed - this actually makes me more likely to try again, since it means I won't feel tempted to make a map, which would be REALLY dull.

Good game but feels like Legend of Grimrock
