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?

This is a very good game even though I would like to know what he did that he felt remorse for but, the story is greater than a majority of the mainstream games because it actually has a plot. Thank you for actually putting effort into a game instead of one where all you do is run around shooting and knifing people. Thank you for being original.

Ok, what the heck did you do that caused her to REFUSE to forgive you until you had your arms, legs, and entire body destroyed and only your spirit remains?! You must be a really bad person..

Anyway, I think this game was very interesting, but my only complaint is that when you ARE able to swim, it feels more like you're walking on water than it does actual swimming. But you are only able to swim in 1 segment of the game, so it isn't that big of deal, plus the story and the gameplay more than makes up for it. So 4.5 stars.

Really interesting Platformer. I think you should try doing bigger games and kickstart something, or greenlight it on Steam. I honestly would help you to get some hype. This little experience was one of the best Platformers I ever experienced.
