How to swim in GKC platformer, or turn off gravity

First, we need a pool.

Next, we need a barrier. Disable collision, and change the color to

You might want to disable the outline too.
Now copy that barrier. Turn collision back on, and make the new barrier invisible.
In the settings,

Now, copy this barrier a few times and shift it down every time, so we have layers.

Now, we need two triggers.

Extra note

You can send on channel "activate" whenever you want the pool to start being full of water.

If you never send on channel “activate” however, the pool will stay non-water.


For me, fewer layers is better, since it reduces choppiness and lag. However, sometimes, more layers is better, to simulate how the real world works. I personally would do a layer every gim jump height (single).


The trigger delay time is important! I haven't experimented with them yet, but it seems like longer trigger delay works better.

Proof this works

(yes, you can fall back down by standing still)

Research tag reason: I want to know the best trigger delay and # layers for this.


preety good

This guide is so good. It’s goldentumblr_mit6o1qvif1rfjowdo1_500
I’m reading this guide but I don’t understand how this works, but it clearly does, good job!
This could also be combined with this guide

Imagine the game you could make with these two!

This honestly could be used for a lot of Metroidvanias. I like it.

I am sorry for my ignorance, but what is-


  1. Is it some internet sensation, a game, an obscure gimkit thing, a map in discovery, still in the making? (I’m really just having fun with the … boxes, though) ↩︎

If I remember correctly, in a private message with Pharlain, I was told that there’s actually no rule against AI bots:

As long as this new alleged “AI” does not break any forum rules, I believe that there’s no real reason to ban them, besides “impersonation” (impersonation in quotes because you can’t impersonate “Discord” and impersonating a fictional character is also not against the rules). Actually, the only rule the “bot” has broken so far is “no off-topic posting”, but I don’t think it’s gonna get banned for that just yet.
