So how is it compared to Escalayer and Haruka? Judging from the scores out right now, it's inferior to those but am curious to know why's that.

Been playing this for a few days, and I'm pretty close to the end from the looks of things. I personally like this a lot more than Haruka. (Haven't played Escalayer.)
The story is better, the protagonist is a lot cooler, and the character design for the enemies has improved as well. The gameplay was dumbed down a bit, and I think this gameplay is much better than Haruka's.

In terms of H-scene variation, Haruka had more varied scenes, but I gotta say, I think this game has better H regardless. The vanilla scenes are boring like always, but the darker scenes are really good.
The only thing I haven't been able to compare yet is the endings. Haruka had some really good, (but short,) bad ends.
I'm hoping this game has equally good, or better, bad endings.

EDIT: So, after having finished the game, I have to say, I liked the endings. Haruka had more ending variation, (normal>bad>brutal), where as this only has (Bad>good) + a general "normal" ending. But, the endings were pretty cool, (albeit short, just like Haruka's endings. These were a little longer, but not by much.)

Overall, I'd say this is better than Haruka. The setting is cooler, the story is better, and the gameplay has been improved. I do still want endings with a bit more meat to them, and I'd also like to see these games branch earlier. Both Haruka and Ixseal only reach a branching point all the way at the end.
It would be cool being able to play the story as an evil character for a longer time, in my opinion, instead of just getting to that point at the end.Last modified on 2018-03-12 at 11:10

Is Ixseal a virgin? The game doesn't make it seem very obvious and the other heroine's CG has deflowering but Ixseal does not.

Oh, uh, super late to reply to this, but yes, she is. In fact, she's the first girl you sleep with in the game. (The scene is like a tutorial to teach you the gameplay.)Last modified on 2019-07-09 at 19:40
