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 4 / 5 stars

For a game done within 48 hours, you pulled it off and it went pretty well. I'm giving you 4 stars cause the story is the main reason that I didn't rate lower. The reason I kept playing was because I was filled with suspense and what would happen in the end. I only wish it could have been longer and be more challenging... the gameplay was kinda bland but whatever. Nice job!


AdventureIslands responds:

Agreed, the game is bit short and simple, but I hope the story and ending helps to make up for it.

At first I was pissed at the cruelness of the "deity"

but it turns out to be much, much more profound that I thought

this felt like it could have been something awesome.

but on the waterfall level, sitting there and waiting for the waterfalls to fade away

over

and over

and over again

ruined this for me.

not a skill mechanic. just a boredom/patience mechanic.
