I guess so. Hopefully people realize their age from playing the game. If not, oh well. Not like it matters much. They COULD be 7-year olds camping without their parents.
I just imagine them as teenagers, myself.
They are supposed to be teenagers.
It's not that uncommon with slightly smaller sprites compared to the rest of the world. Just look at the RTP characters.
I guess the difference with my sprites is that the proportions are slightly more realistic, maybe that makes a difference.
