Hello fellow keeb enthusiasts, I go by Kwerty and maybe some of you have seen my name around or some of my videos on Youtube.

SO I know what you're thinking.. Cojiro oh great another Zelda based set. Well for those of you who recognize the name you'll be pleasantly surprised this set has nothing to do with Zelda.. actually it was inspired by my second favorite game of all time Stardew Valley.
I really want to thank my friends who pushed me to go ahead with this and all of the amazing people from this community who helped get me to the GB stage. And a very special thank you to both Virtual and Pikku who helped with the artwork and renders for this set.



GB is live now until Jan 31st

The current pantones are 2122 C, 2766 C, 2068 C but these are subject to change during color matching. Some of the board renders do use a lot of light, but the keycaps will be color matched to the kit renders as accurately as possible.

2122 C looks way darker than the renders. I still like it a lot though, I'll pick the set up on Friday.

I'm gonna buy Stardew Valley a second time for the switch as a celebration of me enjoying the game, rather than buying a keyset that the developers won't get anything out of.

I've purchased the game on 3 different platforms myself, and there is only 1 developer for SV. However I don't really think these things things are comparable, either way glad to see people enjoying it as much as I do!

I am getting a few questions regarding the alpha colors, you can expect these to be matched to the kit renders closely, the keycaps may be lighter or darker in some renders to match the scene but if you are worried about color matching please reference the kit renders for what you can expect. I do want to be clear as with all renders there will always be some differences as it's not possible to match these 100% to the physical product and as people have different monitor saturation levels, brightness, constrast ect which can also affect how the keycaps may look on a screen.

These are the current pantones but again these could change during color matching phase to closely match the kit renders :)

tl;dr if you like the colors in the kit renders, you should be happy with the keycap colors when you get them and I will provide updates during the color matching process!

Just out of curiosity: does the hiragana kit add a second set of 6.25 and 7 U spacebars and a second tab key? Or am I missing somthing in the renders?

It does. I believe the idea is that it allows you to simultaneously kit out two different boards

Yes this is right the idea is you could potentially kit out 2 different boards if you buy both kits!

I'm in. Fingers crossed that the actual colors will be as close to the kit renders or pikku's renders as possible.

Hey guys quick update, we have decided to purchase extra base kits of the set since it will be many months before sets start shipping to allow for anyone who missed out to still have a good chance at getting the set! Most vendors should have double extras of the base kits now so if you did miss the GB do not worry you will still have a good chance to get a set for yourself  ;D

Thanks again for everyone who joined and supported the set we reached over 750 base kits in the end which is amazing! I will keep this thread updated when things get closer to production and any changes to kits or pantones during the color matching phase. If you do have any additional questions you can join the Discord (https://discord.gg/V7HZtEy) and I will do my best to answer them!
