I am trying to get a Area2D to send a signal to a KinematicBody2D to move.

Here is the Area2D code:

extends Area2D

signal hit

func _ready():

func _on_Area2D_area_shape_entered(area_id, area, area_shape, self_shape):

And here is the KinematicBodys code:

extends KinematicBody2D

var motion = Vector2(0, 0)

func _ready():

func _on_Area2D_hit():
	motion.y = -500

This is my first time, so sorry if I sound like an idiot.

Are you connecting the player to the signal?

(source_node).connect((signal_name), (target_node), (target_function_name))
