How to add swimming

is there any basic way to add swimming, because my flow game is going to need it. It is the main mechanic for the game.

? really? Ok I will try to look up it. are you in the flow jam?

John Shrekinson did this in Gamougg 4, you can play level 6 of that game to see how he did it. I think he used not solid objects but with collisions enabled

The one example was pretty buggy, I suggest thinking of it similarly to a top-down game but with a low level of gravity.
And yes, I am in the Flowjam I’m partnered with the incredible DinoDev

Um yeah I sill don’t know what to do…

But the flowjam is almost over so I have to change the plot.

@Qwen do you mean like a mario platformer swim mechanic or like a top down rpg swim mechanic?

mario platformer
Right now I am working on something for my game.

@Qwen

Something like this? Like in Mario, you’ll sink if you’re not tapping the swim key (W). You can move left or right like in Mario’s swimming mechanics.

Tap the W key to swim up
A,D - Left/Right
