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?

Created for Ludum Dare 26 in under 48 hours. Theme: Minimalism. Check out the Ludum Dare page:

Good game and ending but controls can be a little mean.

Pretty great for under 48 hours. Had any longer been spent, I'd have had to criticize how short it was. It reminded me of Super Meat Boy the way the controls were a little bit floaty but you never felt like it was the controls' fault when you died; it was all on you. The music was nice, the story was good. Nice, tight game. And I loved how you gradually lost bits which affected gameplay in believable ways. As believable as being a disembodied head or a disembodied SPIRIT can be, at least.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

The controls are awful, but the storyline is okay, 0 stars for the control, 5 for the story, devide by two is: 2,5 stars


Rated 2 / 5 stars

This game is so boring and unoriginal. The jumping controls are floaty and weird that they only seem the work when they feel like it. This game uses tropes that have been in games for 20+ years and it makes it feel like I've played all before, because I have. Not to mention the ear-splittingly annoying music.
