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?

By far one of the best minimalist platformers I've played in a while. The story being explained in full only at the end makes the message all the more impactful. The gameplay, while simple, still presented a challenge. I was especially impressed in the part after losing my legs and the ability to jump: Every single movement still went according to clockwork, meaning that all the game necessitated was the player's timing; I was thoroughly impressed with the lack of chance and solid level design there.

The theme of "Minimalism" has definitely been captured well enough and for a 48-hour game this is good, very good.
