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?

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Pretty good game..didn't really like the 'no arms' portion of the game as I was over-jumping the little platforms and the water wasn't helping any with it rising and falling as quickly as it did..But I did manage to get the badge and that's all that matters.
