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?

Interesting game! I almost stopped playing because it seemed just like a general platformer with not real unique features until I lost my legs. I enjoyed the "de-evolution" idea that seemed to be at play here, but I wish you had done a bit more with it tbh (a few more stages of devolution or have something more impactful happen when you lose your arms etc etc.)

Notes:
- No resume game system, not a big deal but :(
- Graphics are quite nice
- Controls feel a bit "sticky" on occasion oddly (during stopping and starting)

AdventureIslands responds:

More lost limbs would have definitely had more impact, but it was already tough enough to get the game done with the 48 hour time limit.

Originally the character was supposed to be able to shoot beams and he would lose that ability first, but I had to cut that out.

This is a really good flash. alright I admit I can't judge the platforming due to my lack of skill at platforming, but what's fascinating is the way it can weave every gameplay element into a part of the story, and while I can't judge the platforming due to lack of experience I can say I had fun with the whole thing.
