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?

Excellent game!
What I liked most is the fact that the game is difficult, yet not impossible to finish, which is a very rewarding thing!

A pretentious art game that doesn't suck? What madness is this?

The gameplay, while a little floaty, is pretty decent. Normally I would complain about taking away abilities to make the game harder, but in this case it actually sort of works. The story integrates well with the gameplay, justifying what would normally be a major problem. There isn't really a bad guy, both parties have good (or at least understandable) reasons for what they do. And, most importantly, the game's theme of redemption actually works. You actually accomplish your goal in the end, which feels rewarding (that's more than I can say for certain other games I can name). Yeah, it's an art project, but it's a damn good art project.
