Don't be so dense. You can't just make everything about them look young, this is the best you can do legally. And it will be enough for those vile people.
No it won't. This is vanilla as all get out. People that actually want to look for anime depictions of children would know where to get it, and it ain't this.

The above applies to this too.
Surely pedos are attracted to children based on their bodies, right?

Characters that have fully grown bodies and are dressed like adults don't really seem like pedo bait to me. The girl in the middle is the only one that I feel like could even slightly look under 18 (although she looks more like a 19-20 year old to me).

Are you not aware that in a lot of countries including the US outright explicitly underage drawn/animated porn is legal? People who want that know where to get it easily and often legally.

I'm so confused. Still not seeing it. That's your anime sameface at work there. And re-reading the various character path summaries again I very strongly doubt that these characters are being infantilised. If you are imagining children being put in the scenarios that they outline, children thinking the way these characters do, then the problem might lie with you. I'm out of here

People are either trolling or being intentionally obtuse.

It's beyond the pale to be honest. Mostly using this thread to fill up the ignore list anymore.
Agreed, it's ridiculous. I mean, if people don't care for this sort of thing that's fine, but the sheer number of dissenting opinions should be an obvious red flag that maybe, just maybe, this stuff isn't the obvious "pedo bait" some people think it is.

It's not people trying to defend underage content, it's people saying it's not that sort of thing in the first place, and there's actual solid ground for that argument.

I'm so glad you did this so I didn't have to.
I want each of y'all to draw me a face, just a face, in this style, no glasses or nuthin, that is so definitively aged "20" that no one could possibly believe that it's maybe 17 instead.

In fact, show me some random celebrity at 17, and then at 18, side by side, and tell me if the difference is so immediateoy clear that it's shocking. Hint: faces don't really change much in a handful of years.

Stop trying to think everything is just some crazy conspiracy to sneak child porn into everything and open your fucking eyes.

Yes, they’re being depicted as either underage or borderline underage. When it comes to this genre, the creators don’t deserve the “benefit of the doubt”

Why not stylize them as slightly older? Maybe add in facial features that provide a clear distinction? Would that harm the point of the game? If it does, then that just proves my point of what audience they’re trying to cater to
I don't think that the way someone draws faces means they're implicitly targeting pedophiles. The anatomy and writing seem to indicate adulthood so I don't know if there would be any means to remove a game like this if you really wanted to attempt to. It looks like the person uses a derivative anime style so I wouldn't expect them to know facial structure.

Have people defended pedophilia by saying "they are just pixels!!!" or "it is just drawing so it OK"?

I have never been so disgusted than to read these comments on Reddit. Hopefully Era is better than that.

Thankfully you are objectively wrong, and the world at large is more rational than this.
So depicting child porn is ok with the world at large? Ok buddy thankfully you're objectively wrong and the world at large is more rational than this.

Hello! Think about what you're saying. Depicting minors, in High School having sex is ok? You know that there's a word and a place for people like you.

I don't think it's a crazy conspiracy. It's clear as day.

These character are drawn young with 'adult' bodies for perverts.

This is fucking disgusting, they absolutely look like children. You can't just put a business suit on a kid and say they no longer look like a kid
Just an artstyle breh. Pedos hiding in open sight on this forum but let's dress it up as "kink shaming" and "anime hate".

If there's one thing pedophiles are known for it's their love of voluptuous cartoon women.
i can't believe people aren't seeing the bigger picture here

1. make a porn game where the characters have normal adult bodies
2. attract pedos to the game by giving the characters young faces
3. the pedos will be tricked into liking voluptuous cartoon women instead of children
4. no more pedophiles

these devs are HEROES and should be applauded

So all girls under 18/19 are completely flat chested and have the bodies of children? Nah I'm not buying that because that's not the truth.

I agree with that and even made a comment recently pertaining to said reddit culture some weeks ago.

However, the couple people here that don't even entertain the idea that the characters in the game/OP are depicted as anything but clearly underaged are arguing in bad faith³. Stating that as 'fact' and then calling everyone who disagrees a pedo or whatever is ridiculous.

Please tell me why this game even needs to have characters coming close to this age range?

Is a 25-30 year old that much uglier?
So just ban any and all anime depictions of young adults cause some people can't handle the fact that 20 year olds can still look like teenagers?

Also way to completely dodge the question once again.

No, I'm arguing that some people will look past those elements because it's a game depicting people who look like young teens for the most part.
From what i have seen on the news, i get the impression that pedos know how to get actual child porn and don't need or want large anime boobs plastered on them.

They are certainly not going "ugh, these girls have such stupidly huge tiddies and motherly hips, but i like those nondetailed faces so i guess i can use these to jack it."

I'm really grossed out by this thread. Going to take a break from era. Fucking gross.
Yeah. For a progressive forum how this shit is allowed is beyond me.
Are these thinly veiled hints to try and get the thread shut down?

It's an important change Steam has made and relevant to the gaming industry as a whole. It would be a worthwhile thread to keep up if people didn't flock here to derail the thread with nonsense about how all anime characters are pandering to paedophiles.

The amount of bans and warnings for disingenuity and arguing in bad faith would be enormous if it were any other topic. I'm sure some of the people here are just straight up trolling anime fans at this point.

What would you define as a kid? A kid/child to me is someone who is aged up to 18. After 18 they're legally an adult. So the question is when was the last time you seen a kid?
Every day that I go to work.

Children look like children. I've never seen a child that looks like the characters in this game.

Why are so many posters focusing on the plight of 'anime fans' and not the fact this game is clearly aimed at people who want to fuck kids?

Jesus.
