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?

Rated 3 / 5 stars

my main gripe is that some of the jumping seems to be pixel perfect. at one point in the first water level, and when your invisible, I'm at the end of the platform, and try to jump up to a higher platform, but 9/10 times i don't make for some reason.

Excellent game, perfect balance. Creative and constantly interesting. Challenging in fun way, not frustrating. A surprisingly deep story. Wonderfully minimalist!

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Good concept and story, but the steep learning curve makes it a not-so-good experience. The last level is ridiculously hard in comparison with the immediately preceding ones. I barely needed to restart in previous levels, whereas I have spent approximately an hour trying to finish the last one and still haven't been able to.

It's a brilliant game and think that you made it in only 48 hours is impressive
