[IC] JTK Cyberkeycapset
« on: Thu, 10 December 2020, 22:41:45 »


Hello Geekhackers and cyberpunk fans! Yesterday i saw a post on r/mk with the cyberpunk pantone color and instantly got inspired to create a futuristic keycap set that will match all of yours cyberpunk merch and peripherals!

ABOUT: The set is inspired by the futuristic dystopian world of cyberpunk, sadly I have not been able to to play the game because I have a gtx 1050 and the game does not run well on my computer but I have seen trailer and gameplay videos and think it looks very cool !

So I present to you cyberkeycapset !


It uses cyberpunk colors.



better kitting and renders soon !

Please let me know what do you think in the comments below !

I do not think this is the best representation of Cyberpunk's colors. A tad strenuous on the eyes. Was this IC released early to claim the idea of cyberpunk?

I used the official cyberpunk colour they posted so i think it's accurate. I've been very excited for cyberpunk and i really wanted to make a keycap set for it.

Not sure the Krelbit copypasta has ever been more relevant. OP, in all seriousness give this a read please.

I appreciate the hustle and desire to capitalize on zeitgeist while you can.

That being said, early ICs are simply not the way to go about publishing a set concept. A bad early IC is way worse than a late, fleshed out IC. ICs are all about impressions and the impression this IC leaves upon me is very poor. You're looking for positive reception as confirmation for renders? You're not going to find it with this low quality of an IC.

It's clear that you're fairly new to the community. You made a GH account to post this thread. This is a 104 key base kit. That's something you majorly flesh out before you even have colors in a lot of cases. Your colors are web colors, meaning you're oblivious to the IC process and GMK production as a whole, things you can easily find out more about by visitng the trove of old GB and IC threads, or even uniqey's website. This comes off as a cash grab from an inexperienced community member, which, to be honest, I'm not ragging on, but I'm definitely not about it. Take some time in the hobby to be part of the community. Be a little more active. Find out what works, what's good, why it works, why it's good, and talk with more types of folks to engage in that exchange. That's what it's really about. While the "i see guy make thing, i can make thing too!" mentality certainly has driven a lot of cool stuff, this is not one of those cases.

Renders went from being a nice to have in ICs to nearly a need to have. It shows you have some level of personal commitment to the set that you would even pay for mockups our of your own pocket before anything is official. To not have renders and to just show off a set of KLEs, is definitely not a good look, and the KLEs do a very poor job of showing the colors that you want to show, or maybe they do a really good job, but to me they look like blanks. I'm not trying to bog you down or take shots at an easy target, rarely anything ever deserves that. If you're truly invested in making this set happen beyond a text-post and a barely visible KLE render, you need to make a very good impression, so that vendors who see your IC will want to work with ya.

Many people will not buy into the concept if the IC is not good from the get-go. You can sell any concept to anyone as long as the beginning impressions are good enough.

If you're intent on making this happen (and this would have to be very soon, before more eyes can see this and get their first impressions, which, in their current state would result in the set being written off extremely quickly) then you can:

1. Flesh out those layouts.
2. Get some renders.
3. Pick colors that aren't web colors, it's 2020. We have resources to help design GMK sets. GMK has resources to help design GMK sets. Use google, guy.
4. Goals, MOQs, prior contact to GMK show vendors that you're willing to do work beyond "hur dur look at color now shoulder it all for me," which, even if a vendor wouldn't take you up on, they would like to see.
5. Give more of a ****. Going into a project half-assed (you could be fully on board, but this post does certainly not show that) only makes me believe in the project less. If you don't believe in your project enough to give a detailed, commited sales pitch, why should any vendor, or even why should the community believe in it? Dipping your toes into the pool is simply not an option when everyone else who's making successful sets is hopping in headfirst.


cmon guy.

not to flame, But this is extremely low effort. You took 2 stock colors and smashed them together with little to no thought, and it came out as an eyestrain of a keycap set that will get you sued faster than using NCS music on youtube.

OP, I think it's pretty clear what people think of your set. You made the decisions to stay true to the colors from the inspiration and it was not taken very well. Perhaps spending more time thinking about kitting and colors will be beneficial.

Not that I'm really defending this set or the designers discord, but did you even think about this response before posting it? This kneejerk response was reckless and just doesn't belong on Geekhack, and certainly does not improve the already fairly toxic environment in these forums. Criticize the set for what it did wrong, that's completely fair. What isn't fair is your attempt to say these sets aren't good in their own right just so that you can put down a discord server. Going through each individually, there's actually not much wrong with any of the sets mentioned and are actually great representations of good ICs and sets.

To be honest Puddsy, you have been a great influence in the past. But I think even you can agree that this comment was a load of dog**** and does nothing constructive besides boost your ego.

Colors, kitting, and copypasta aside, this IC does need a lot of work. One of the biggest things I'm seeing is that even though this is planned to be a JTK set, it doesn't utilize their greatest asset: tripleshot legends. This could easily be run as any other set otherwise.

The release of the IC has clearly been lined up with the release of the game. If you're trying to capitalize on the hype of the game, on top of adding novelties and such, it should be worth considering how you will craft the set keeping IP and Copyright infringement in mind going forward.

As a general rule of thumb, it would be better to release an IC when you have everything ready to present to get accurate feedback. Posting something as superficial as this doesn't give nearly enough information as to what the set has to offer other than Cyberpunk themed.
