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?

This game is so sad... And beautiful. It's short, but very enjoyable. I was curious to see how this would end, so I just had to keep the name of the game to continue: "Persist" :,) cried. I understand... You have to prove you deserve forgiveness. This game's short, but it seems to have a lot of things we don't know. Good job.

Really short, but I loved it regardless. I was surprised by the depth it had for such a little game. A lot of unspoken story in it. Great!

A great little game. Really fit the theme, and had a surprisingly emotional story. I really enjoyed it and the game was actually challenging at some points (the rising wave lvl).
