My Eyes Deceive Me is a controversial game not recommended for younger players. Roblox took it down, though it is still present on itch.io. It is said that the original version of the game is darker than that mentioned in the article.
An independent developer named Nouhidev originally put the game on itch.io in May 2023 and later allowed it to be uploaded on Roblox. My Eyes Deceive Me is one of the darker games on Roblox, but it is not the reason for taking it down.
Reportedly, people played the game more on Roblox than itch.io, and the original developer hardly got credits. Thus, the game was removed from Roblox. Some people relate the game to the Fritzl case, where a father was charged with imprisoning his daughter in a basement and abusing her for twenty-four years.
My Eyes Deceive Me
My Eyes Deceive Me is a psychological game, but not for the faint-hearted. It includes a little girl living in a basement and her father communicating with her from the roof. He never enters the basement and claims to do so to protect her from the cruel and diseased outer world.
However, the father does not fail to tell her daily stories from the outside world. It is the catch. There must be heart-wrenching reason for a father to take such a big step. Moreover, her father is the only way she can access the outer world.

The little girl follows a routine every day. She wakes up, consumes the sedatives as instructed by her father, uses the oven for food, has a meal, gets hydrated, and sleeps.
For a change, the players encounter new objects, and the girl gets mysterious nightmares. The father recommends her sedatives to fight the diseases spread in the outside world, and she trusts him.
The players arrive at a decision point when the father suddenly disappears, and the little girl has the freedom not to consume the sedatives. The players’ decisions change the game ahead.
My Eyes Deceive Me Ending Explained
Players complain that My Eyes Deceive Me ends abruptly, and they do not know the reason. However, the ending turns out to be a decision-making point for the girl (and the players too) whether to continue with the sedatives. Based on her decision, there are two endings: the good and the bad.
The Good Ending
The game will have a good ending if the daughter stands up for herself and stops consuming sedatives as prescribed by her missing father. It will help her learn what has been happening to her.
According to a scene, the girl pretends to be sleeping after not taking the sedatives and gets approached by her father. Before he can do anything, someone knocks on the door. The father goes out to answer the people standing there but forgets to put the hatch. It is how the girl runs away if she does not take the sedatives.
Further, it turns out that the policemen are already suspicious of the father, who has been purchasing sedatives. He gave her sedatives in the name of antidotes that caused her nightmares.
Moreover, the girl got extended and more distorted nightmares every time. It explains why the game is called ‘My Eyes Deceive Me.’
According to the good ending, the girl escapes the basement but does not know how to survive in the outer world. She might not ask for help because she does not know what happened to her when she was under the influence of sedatives. Moreover, she can read, but the sedatives must have affected her mental health.
The Bad Ending
The bad ending occurs if the player lets the girl in the basement continue with the sedatives. It might get darker. Some players assume that the father must be abusing her after she sleeps. The aim of giving her sedatives must be to keep her unaware of what he has been doing to her.
If you remember, someone knocks at the door, and the girl sees many people waiting at the door (according to the good ending). So, the girl might continue to get abused by her father and those people if a bad ending happens.
Some players also guess that the father abuses her daughter to deal with the loss of his wife, who is not shown yet.
