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 was absolutely wonderful. And in only 24 hours, too? I'm impressed.

The only thing I wish for is a save feature, because right at the very end I accidentally clicked on an ad and lost all my progress! It was a good game, but I'm still miffed at having to play through the entire thing just to see the ending.

Good game and ending but controls can be a little mean.

Pretty great for under 48 hours. Had any longer been spent, I'd have had to criticize how short it was. It reminded me of Super Meat Boy the way the controls were a little bit floaty but you never felt like it was the controls' fault when you died; it was all on you. The music was nice, the story was good. Nice, tight game. And I loved how you gradually lost bits which affected gameplay in believable ways. As believable as being a disembodied head or a disembodied SPIRIT can be, at least.

The controls are awful, but the storyline is okay, 0 stars for the control, 5 for the story, devide by two is: 2,5 stars
