Gimkit Creative FAQ

Do I need to know how to code to use Gimkit Creative?

No, not at all! You'll be able to build tons of games without having any knowledge of coding!

Gimkit Creative will have a drag-and-drop code block editor (similar to Scratch) available for building more advanced maps. It's totally optional and you can do a ton in Creative without using the block editor! For example, our One Way Out game mode was built entirely without having to use the drag-and-drop code block editor.

Can I publish my maps for other people to play?

You can make your Gimkit Creative Maps available for others to play with a Publish Link.

Gimkit Creative Publish LInk
We're planning to add more robust publishing in the future. You can still play your maps with others though! You'll host a session with your map, and a game code will be there for other people to join and play!

Is Gimkit Creative free?

Yes, Gimkit Creative is free to use for students and teachers!

Depending on the plan, you can store different amounts of Maps in your account:

Gimkit Basic: 3 Maps
Gimkit Pro: 10 Maps
Season Ticket: 25 Maps

We may make some some parts of Gimkit Creative paid in the future (for example, publishing a map might require a Gimkit Pro subscription). As an added bonus, when in Gimkit Creative, there will be no 5-player limit for students! You can create and play your creations with up-to 60 people!

Who can edit my Creative Maps?

With Creative, you can collaborate on your Maps with others. Use the Permissions Option to set what other players collaborating with you are allowed to do.
