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?

What a beautiful game. Well done. A lot of emotion backed by gameplay that helps tell the story.

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.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

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.
