maybe too similar to hyperfuse? In reality the alphas would be an instabuy, to combine them with that set.

Just fix this in the alphas set, bacause otherwise it is unusable, add:
R2 <>
R3 #
R4 \|
F J with bars

These are fair points, I'll see if I can get the additions made and added to the alpha set.

interested...

Well thats awesome, really happy to hear that. Stay tuned for pricing soon! Currently in talks with GMK to lock that in. Might be working on some artisans behind the scenes...

Oh!! I can't wait to see what artisans you have to offer!  :eek:

Well the first concepts are live! More to come soon.

imo the set looks a lot better with dark navy as alphas in the core set (the second render).

Any possibility to include another international kit with the alternative alpha kit color? That dark blue with green turquoise looks amazing, but international kit is only in grey :(

Right now we're looking at around June. Its a little tough right now due to the amount of GMK sets on the market but thats a pretty solid ballpark.

Looking at Keylabs, Candy Keys, Daily Clack and Zfrontier as the vendors

So the euro kit combined with the newest version of the Alpha kit should be compatible with most european setups.

Looks like you'll be going to toe-to-toe with GMK Oblivion. Good Luck.

This is an excellent kit so I hope Oblivion doesn't take too much of the spotlight.

Although I do like Oblivion, the pretty different feel of the set maybe caters to a different audience. I believe it is going to be launched on massdrop as the single source. I wish them the best of luck with their launch, very well designed kit.

Hey thanks! Big fan of your set as well, really great stuff. I'd like to pick one up if I can budget for it. Good luck to you too.

Haha thanks for the input, I'm a little more partial to the subs myself so I made the call earlier on to leave them in, but thats just me

Have you considered "fancy" number pad legends, like what is on GMK Minimal, instead of the standard ones? I feel like it gives that part of the keyboard a more refined look.

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it. Fellow blues have to stick together haha.

I can appreciate wanting to stick to the legends and icons how they are, everyone has different tastes. Even if they stay the same I'll most likely be joining :)

Are the dark alphas closer to the rich dark colors of the renders or the most pastel colors of the gmk pictures?

So realistically they should be a little closer to the top renders. The artist said in his experience the lighting he used is practically more realistic to the final product, but of course, they are digital renders based on pantone colors, which appear differently on different mediums so there is always some flux. I'm waiting on pantone chips soon, so hopefully that will help, but we'll see.

I saw the latest update and thought that with the GB in sight, it would be nice to see what the color combinations of Metropolis and Hammerhead would look like next to each other, so I mocked up a little comparison in PS. (Pardon my rudimentary graphic design :-X)




I was surprised how different some of the colors ended up looking (e.g. 3258 vs. 333) but I think that it might be quite hard to tell in person. I think by mixing some of the kits together you could still end up with some pretty nice looking results!

This is really cool actually, solid work! Honestly I would probably want to hold both kits in my hands to see how well they gel together but up until this point I hadn't really considered mixing them. Could end up looking really cool though.

Is there any chance to make "alternative Alpha kit" become the main base set and Alpha in the base set become " Alternative kit"?

Thanks! I agree that this is definitely a long ways away from being an accurate comparison, but regardless I am always a fan of mixing up different sets, and think that these two could mesh together in some really interesting ways!

You know, I had seriously considered this earlier on. But from my perspective, I do love the original alphas and there are just a lot of sets that have the dark/cyan/teal combo already that I really wanted to try and do something a little different. Hopefully that makes some sense, I'm still putting some thought into it though as we continue moving forward.
