"You plummet through icy water, until you hit a smooth metallic surface. You gasp for air, and as your eyes adjust you see a long corridor. Beneath your fingers you feel the familiar fabric of a test-subject's jumpsuit, and know the number on yours reads '1090.'
Its time to get out of here."
Escrapecraft 3 is the third installment of the Escapecraft series. This version features dozens of rooms, 2 endings, a custom texture pack and even more devious puzzles from everyone's favorite villain - Herobrine.
Those familiar with my previous games (click here for the first, and here for the second) will know the drill. There is a short tutorial room to explain the rules and demonstrate new mechanics (there are several).
Thanks to you all's support, EC1, 2 and 3 have been downloaded more than 1,500,000 times!
Be sure to check out Escapecraft Dual and help build Heroblock City!
Using the included texture pack is STRONGLY recommended!!! Several puzzles are designed with it in mind, and certain secret areas are only accessible to those with the pack!
For those who prefer a HD texture pack for the EscapeCraft experience, one of our fans graciously put one together. Links and instructions may be found here, and video of the pack may be found (Note: this texture pack is not supported by the EC3 staff).
SPECIAL THANKS TO: MrScaryMuffin (who made the game with me), Fish (the texture pack guy), TheWiz, SWEETNESS_IB, yowto, berky93, TurtleeyMC, Mooseeeeey, User, Wookie4747, XxJT713xX, Sealystar, Drsaz, Nate V, and all the others who helped test!
Some users have reported very low framerates while playing on laptops or PCs with certain configurations. This is due to the use of certain types of circuits for some of the puzzles. This issue should be resolved with the latest version, but please leave a comment if you still experience lag.

Q: The texture pack is causing Minecraft to crash!! Help!
A: This is usually because you are using MCPatcher, HD Texture Pack or a similar utility. You can either use the HD texture pack (here) or delete your .bin file - which will cause Minecraft to download a new one.
Q: This map has a LOT of lag!!! Help!!!
A: This is a problem on many lower-end computer and most laptops. Please use the low framerate version.
Q: I'm back in the mirror room (but on the top of the mirror) where do I go now?
A: Head back to the "failing sand" room. You can use your new item to unlock a new area!
Q: I'm back in the Door room - where do I go now?
A: Head back to the "lava pillar" room. You can use your new item to unlock a new area!

putting your texture pack in my texturepack folder crashes my minecraft =(
Hey, make sure you are putting the correct texture zip file into the folder. When you first unzip the Escapecraft 3.zip file, you'll get two more zip files. One is the texture pack, which goes (as a zip file) into your texture folder and the other goes to your save.
Let me know exactly what's going on and the steps that you took to get you there and I'll see if I can help you out.
