The set looks like it's GMK, but you put PBT plastic for the material. Is this an error?

You fixed it. :D GLWIC, the set looks dope as always!

So nice to see a set with generic icon legends for all of the contentious keys. Also, the cyberpunky aesthetic looks pretty slick, it's giving me Blade Runner 2049 vibes. All in all,



My only request would be to make the R4 ISO alpha keys <> instead of \|, \|ヘ¥, in order to avoid duplicate keys, like you did in GMK Honor :)



Looks great otherwise.

Yes!
The set is heavily inspired by the cyberpunk genre, HUD/GUIs & 80s aesthetics, so it can make you think of many references!
Akira is definitely one of them.

Been waiting for this! Now I can't really tell, is the caps color black or really really dark blue?

Edit: seeing it now on a better screen I can tell that it is actually very dark blue

Cool, it was my first immediate thought just looking at the keyset logo! Being a 80s cyberpunk/retrowave fan I will strongly consider it. Already joined Honor which I really like, so good job with the designs!

What's the point of having a blurb entirely for telling us that the colors you'll be matching to won't be revealed? Unless they will be later on? I get it's for protection of the designers when color matching, but seeing a sample keycap on top of a chip when in that phase puts a lot of ease on me, and hopefully others. Forcing customers to rely on the colors matching the renders (which, according to designers, can vary because of monitors) doesn't seem like an honest and transparent way to go about it.

He can still reveal the colors when the GB has launched if he wishes to do so. Giving out that information months ahead of the GB only serves competition that seeks to copy designs.

I wouldn't be so optimistic for fake set manus to be meticulous about matching colors precisely to the pantones/rals provided. There's enough science in color matching to get sets to where they are advertised to be, but being in the dark about what to expect other than what my uncalibrated monitor can tell me doesn't instill trust, especially when there's a blurb telling me "nah brah no reference colors 'ere".

Pretty awesome but not enough of ISO support.
1. Can you add please at least either R3:Tilde/GraveAccent or R4:Tilde/GraveAccent?
2. Or maybe a NorDeUK kit?
One of the above will certainly make me to buy set or two.
