[IC] GMK Daifuku - GB July 30th
« on: Sun, 07 March 2021, 11:22:43 »
Hi everyone!
Today, we are presenting to you GMK Daifuku. Daifuku (大福餅) is a popular traditional Japanese sweet; it is soft mochi stuffed with sweet red bean paste. A popular spring dessert, Strawberry Mochi (Ichigo Daifuku) is a soft and chewy mochi stuffed with fresh juicy strawberry and sweet red bean paste. Indulge yourself with this beautiful and delicious set! Knowing that, this set is a reference to the Strawberry Mochi. (why would you want any other flavors) It captures the light of a fluffy pink strawberry to a slightly darker sweet red bean paste.

This set is really cute and I look forward to more updates on this set!

Few thoughts I have on the current version:
- The pale pink (mochi) color reads more pale in the render than the pantone color card -- maybe it's the lighting effect? Would be nice if we can see the render on a few different background/keyboards.
- Can we include an extra B in the base set?
- Can we also get a 2u shift key in the base set?
- What is the key between the stepped cap and the extra F/J?
- I think there's a duplicate ~/` key in the base set.

Personally I am not a huge fan of the novelties (idunno what it is but the strawberry peaking out of the two halves of the mochi looks weird to me). But the colorway is very soothing and I am definitely interested in the base set. GLWIC!

You try to make the base kit compatible with as many layouts as possible but don稚 include a numpad?

Super cute set !

The colors are lovely.

Personally not too keen on some of the novelties like the fork (just seems a bit plain) and the hearts with Mr Daifuku's face (it has a creepy vibe to me for some reason, I would have prefered just regular hearts like the ones on his left and right, and same for the solo heart with his face, I would have prefered a regular heart).
Also with the one next to the 3 hearts, I guess it's 2 Daifuku hugging? But seeing it from the back does feel a bit strange, I see like a daifuku with a nose, that was cut in half.

I love the other novelties and find them super cute.

That is true. Polls right now are leaning on the "separate kit". Separating the kits will make the pricing a bit cheaper.

Just noticed in the IC form there's no option to "No desk-mats" which means people who try to fill out the form have to pick at least one out of the two available designs... It would be nice to add the "No desk-mats" option to reflect the real count better.

Cute set! I'm personally a lot more interested in the darker and more saturated Pantone colours shown above the base kit. I'd love for the actual set to be a bit darker to reflect this, especially the mods. The novelties are a good start! I really love the plain strawberry and the little daifuku with arms and legs, but a lot of the others feel a bit strange and off kilter. Please consider a numpad and f13 in base. Looking forward to seeing where this kit goes!

I absolutely love this colorway! Legit made a geekhack account to comment on it, that's how much I like it haha. I filled out the IC, but I wanted to ask here as well, is there a chance for a latin-only base add-on? Also some more deskmat options, maybe one with sakura patterns like one of your novelties? Also, the pantone picked for red bean shows as quite light on your renders, I'm fine with it either way tbh but I would like to be see the colors rendered on different boards and lighting scenarios.

Maybe you weren't talking about my comment, but I realized my comment was worded a bit poorly.

The novelties I am not so keen on are:

-The enter fork key (just seems a bit plain/not so much in the theme)
-The heart with a face on it (R2 with the single heart, and R4 with the 3 hearts), because I find it a bit creepy/not in line with the rest of the cute novelties. And I would prefer just a simple heart / 3 hearts.
-The hugging (I think) novelty on R4, because considering we see the back only, it's a bit hard to tell what you are looking at imo. I think a hugging daifuku with open arms from the front would be more "readable"

But I love the others ones, especially the daifuku with the little arms and legs as you pointed.


ps: I would love to see a Deskmat with the 2 little daifuku's holding hands/heart that are in the first picture of the IC.

I like the icon only mods. Keeps the set clean.

For the alphas, I note the sublegends are a different colour from the legend. Does this mean that the sublegends are pad printed? Cos GMK can only do double shot, not triple shot as far as I知 aware.

Assuming you run the set, you can't do it with GMK. They don't have the tooling to produce 3 different colors on the same keycap (tripleshot). Only JTK does that at the moment.

Keep in mind MOQs. With 2 base kits you'd need both of them to reach 250. And that's the same with all of the child kits, you'd need each of those to reach 100.
