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.

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.
