Damn, I am disappointed with numbers. Feel cool new keysets (not just modern implementation of old ones or just color games) don't get mainstream success.

I respect your design approaches. So I have already purchased Base and Forties.

Gonna put this on E-White Prophet.

Hopefully this set looks good on either a Rose Gold TKL or all white board! Beautiful and clean looking set.

Thank you! Don't be disappointed, it will be made! :) Of course a higher number is better, but speaking for me personally it does not matter. I am happy it'll see the light of day and I'll do my best to deliver something great so that people who missed out regret they did ;)

I'm really surprised how conservative these numbers are. I personally think this is one of the best sets in 2020. Quiet and calm, but beautiful. I bought 2 because i missed out on Firefly lol.

Update:

Since about 2 months or more now, I have had the color samples approved but still have heard no confirmation from GMK.

Rest assured that I am constantly in contact with them for updates/trying to get this project to move forwards. Most recently a few days ago.

I will of course update as soon as everything is confirmed with the color samples/production!

Just updating for those who aren't in discord, still no confirmation from GMK. We are on them daily and weekly and gmk keeps saying they will get to even confirming the kits/colors that I approved... Been half a year now.

So in other words, still no updates.

While we wait, I'll ship out some samples to some people from my discord so that they can take some photos.
Note: This is for fun, don't expect 100% color accurate shots. This is just passing time while we all collectively wait.

Hello,

I received some GMK sample keys from Emir, and took some pictures to show you. Here is the imgur album: https://imgur.com/a/qnEBE3J.

Here is the most important image, which shows the alphas in the back, with the 1-4 gradient keys in focus:

262714-0

Some notes on the images. They were taken with an iPhone XS camera (I know, not the best), natural lighting, no post editing at all. The keyboard in photo is a Blackblue Matrix 1.2OG. The other keycaps are GMK WoB.

Initial thoughts- Color matching looks good, especially on the main alpha colors (pink and deep purple). The 1 key is off from renders, but works quite well in the gradient. I personally don't find this to be an issue because of how it works in the gradient.
This and the swiss cheese keyboard is the next generation of keyboards

Hello friends, I too also received the samples from Emir. Gallery + comments can be found at https://liubricated.xyz/gmk-rouge-color-samples/.

The base colour sample was very difficult to photograph outside of a controlled environment; most photos show it to be more blue than it actually is even with a gray card. The gallery linked has a range of environments plus some comparisons to GMK First Love.

Heyo! So GMK still didn't even send me the renders. I hear that they will do so in a few weeks though, but I take this with a grain of salt... Apparently it's up for production soon though! Soon can mean anything though. :D

We haven't talked about this



Other news: I saw what happened with Yugo and the production being delayed because banderole art wasn't sent in. I made sure to send it in so it can't be used as an excuse with rouge! :)

Actually circling back once more, the heart isn't correct. Since they won't send me a sample, all I can do is base it off of their renders and I am not happy with it right now.
sorry, but we are close!
