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?

That was straight up beautiful. You pulled a drawn to life there man! Ii can forgive the "wispy" controls...see what i did there? Anyway, getting to the end of the game was well worth the challenge presented. You have my respect.

The controls are very floaty, moving doesn't feel definite or enjoyable, also a small note that if you are using the gameplay logic of being "unable to swim" rather than being hurt by the water, then you shouldn't die if touching the water if still standing on a block where the water is, as your feet would just be getting wet.

Beautiful, challenging, intense, amazing.

I love the graphics, minimalistic, yet beautiful in the way they are made, and the soothing music and lovely sound effects add to it a lot as well.

The gameplay concept works in pretty interesting ways, with the hero losing abilities, rather than gaining them, through out the game, making this a challenging, but so fulfilling adventure it's awesome.

The story is beautiful, really thought-provoking, and the best thing about it is that we are not even aware of what is really going on all the way to the very end, keeping us hooked all the time.

Only problem are slightly slippery controls, but I have commented on that in many games done by you. Great games, but controls are always a bit off for me.
