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 was really weird, because of how I had no idea what was going on. I didn't know when something was a cutscene, but it was easy to tell after awhile. I think the weirdest thing here is how it's part of two competitions! I didn't even know that was allowed! I appreciate this game for being unique. I thought it was too easy with how the water didn't hurt you at first.

In fact, I thought you couldn't be killed by anything, even the spikes. It's interesting how you later lose your ability to swim or whatever. You can't even TOUCH water anymore! It has very creepy atmosphere, which makes it effective. While some of the strangness takes away its enjoyment, it's still not bad.

A very good game. I LOVED it!!! I found it very short, though...

But I have a question.

BEWARE, SPOILER---------------

The goddess that he's trying to convince to forgive him... is the girl that he assailed?

END OF SPOILER--------------------

Wow. This game is awesome. There's only one problem that keeps bugging me though: At the part where the water rises and flows down, the Goddess begins manipulating time and space to prevent me from progressing. Thanks for this wonderful game anyway, AdventureIslands. Maybe it's just my computer lagging after all. Keep up the good work.
