What is everyone's feeling on this? I laughed a few times when seeing the "armor" of female castanics, humans and elves. I understand the appeal to making the women sexy or cute, but I honestly feeling embarrassed showing this game to some of my friends. The art style of women look like they're targeted towards hormonal 16 year old boys.

You haven't partaken in the Fantasy genre for very long, have you?

You can't deny that it's a whole lot more exaggerated in this.

Thank you, the women are supposed to be hypersexualisationed (lol is that even a word? no.). Your entire post just accidently validated all the hard work put into the game. So, thanks for the compliment and see you in game.

Being a girl myself, I honestly don't mind. Maybe it's due to associating myself with others who are mature enough to realize that just because someone has a nice looking body and feels good showing it, that it does not make them purely objects of sexual ambitions. Or it could be that I'm just used to seeing it so much that my mind has adjusted to it. Lastly, I being a lesbian may make it easier for me to be okay with those kind of designs as well~

With all that said, I prefer gothic lolita, fancy/dressed-up, and anime-esque outfits the most.
Needless to say, i'll cling to any outfit for my race (Elin) that caters to any of those tastes~
I plan on being a Berserker though, so I have to consider armor design that I like as well...
Valkyrie/Angelic, Gothic, Gothic Lolita, Demonic(particularly the succubus look), and maybe Dragonic armor styles would satisfy my tastes~

Of the listed, I'd have to say Valkyrie/Angelic styled armor would please me the most. :3
I think it would be very possible to accent that style with some Gothic Lolita characteristics though... ^ . ~

What hard work? Making an armor look like panties and a bra is hard work?

I understand your point OP, but at least you have the option of wearing underwear - to hide parts that some armor don't.

I don't really like it, but I've seen so many games and anime that do this that it doesn't phase me anymore. I guess Castanics are okay being a succubus feeling kind of race, and the other races are better than them in terms of having options of armor that actually, you know, protect them. There's also under-armor clothing that can be equipped to characters if you chose to to make it look better.
Overall I don't care enough about it to complain or anything, though I do think some of the heavy armors are jokes being called heavy.

Those were just two Google Image searches.

Since you didn't use any smiley faces or anything I'm going to presume this is serious and retort with:

lol yes, art is difficult.
