I can’t escape darkness is a first person exploration puzzle dungeon crawler, where you fall down a hole into a procedurally generated maze where your aim is to stay alive and find your way out of the darkness.
Escaping however isn’t as simple as this as not only are you surrounded by danger at every turn but you also have limited supplies, with a torch that is quickly running out of batteries and only the basics you have to explore the area to find supplies which will help keep you alive long enough to escape the dungeon. There are secrets to discover and many ways to die and fail in your attempts to escape.
The game is difficult but not unfair so it will keep you coming back for more, you could save and continue frequently to avoid the permadeath measure however this might make the game a little too easy to defeat in one run. The game is more designed for you to fail and learn why you failed and avoid dying in the same way again in order to finally find your way out of the dungeon and this is the best way to play for the most enjoyment, the save feature however is useful for if you have limited time and wish to save and continue playing the same run later without rushing in to your death when looking for all the secrets needed to escape.
The game would be ideal for virtual reality but even on an ordinary screen the mood of the darkness and the sounds which you will hear will immerse you into the horror theme of the game, and it is a very enjoyable experience.
