Persist is a tale of a small spirit, trying to seek a mysterious Goddess to forgive his past sins so he can move on to higher plane of existence. Unfortunately the Goddess really resents him. and tries her hardest to keep the spirit from reaching her, stealing his various body parts and various skills with them. Lose your arms, and you can't swim, lose your legs, and you can no longer jump.

Can you reach salvation? Or are you doomed to lose all hope, and your whole existence, in the deep and dark sanctuary of the Goddess?

A short but worthwhile game about forgiveness that doesn't get cloyingly sappy or hit you over the head with moralizing.

I loved both the gameplay and the idea. The fact that I was losing abilities to get to my goal while gaining insight to what is happening and the "sacrifice" idea really worked for me. Keep it up!!
