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?

Created for Ludum Dare 26 in under 48 hours. Theme: Minimalism. Check out the Ludum Dare page:

I salute your ability to create such an elegant twist in such a short amount of time.

However, I still feel that this game is much too short, and deserves expanding upon. I'll leave that up to you though.

Fucking beautiful.

The game itself got annoying at times, particularly when you couldn't swim... but if you... *ahem* 'Persist' then you have a story that while short... while minimal... is so damn beautiful it actually brought a tear to the eye. Bravo...

good game, but a little something during the no body portion to let you know where you are would be helpful, as the sparks are not always there to do so.
