Persist is my entry for Ludum Dare 26 game jam with the theme Minimalism, developed in under 48 hours. It's a small story about a spirit, who is trying to reach a mysterious Goddess to ask for forgiveness for his past sins, but the Goddess really resents him and is trying her hardest to keep the spirit from reaching her, stealing his body parts and various skills with them.

Can you redeem your soul and reach salvation? Or are you doomed to lose all hope, and your whole existence, in the Goddess' deep and dark dungeons?

Check the game's Ludum Dare Page: www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-…

I love the concept, story and the overall spooky vibe that the music and graphics give off, but I think that punishing the player for advancing instead of rewarding them may discourage some players from continuing. It was an unusual challenge that could use some polishing, but otherwise this could be a nice prototype for a unique game.

It was created for Ludum Dare 26 in under 48 hours, with the theme Minimalism. I wanted to bring the theme to the actual gameplay, that's why your character keeps losing parts of himself. I wouldn't say it's punishing the player, just changing how the game plays to give you more challenges to overcome. The whole point of the game is to keep persisting against growing opposition.
