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?

A truly touching story. The ultimate sacrifice was necessary to achieve the highest goal of them all: redemption.

BRILLIANT. I loved the ending. Simple, and poignant.

Very good game, I like the ambient score. However, it could really use an in-level save system, or a checkpoint: missing the last jump at the end of the level is kinda infuriating...
Nevertheless, it warrants a good review.

Great game. The controls are a little slippery, but the fact that the character stays center screen gives the player the ability to place the character even when he is difficult to see. The music was good, and the ending was a twist and quite well thought out. You did a great job with this you should be proud of yourself. The only nitpick I have is that the jumping is finicky and it's difficult to make precise adjustments to your characters position when in the air.

Wow... So, the whole time, the Goddess was really...? And he was the one who...? And at the end, they... WOW. Okay, this is one of the best storylines I've ever seen in a game like this.
