[IC] GMK Metaverse - GB Launching 07/16/18!!!
« on: Thu, 12 April 2018, 13:49:35 »
Welcome. I am delighted to make your acquaintance.



This place exists between dream and reality, mind and matter.
It is a room that only those who are bound by a "contract" may enter.

I am Igor, the master of this place. Remember it well.

I have summoned you to speak of important matters.
It involves your life as well.

Now then, it seems the night is waning... It is almost time.

I am thou, thou art I...

.................




Yo, Yo, Yo! Ummm...Hello? it's me...

We don't have much time here so I will make this quick!

The phantom thieves need your help!

Everyone's health on Joker's team is really low and now we've got to go back them up!

While I'm helping them, I need you to cover for me.

In order to help us out, I have sent the "Metaverse" keyset for you to use!







I'm going to wrap up here and start heading out. This set is GOD TIER! So please take care of it!








OH! and before I forget, here are some renders of the set on a few of my boards!
GOOD LUCK!



Please note that these renders below are of the old bottom row.
The updated renders with the win voted bottom row are on the next post with the updates!

GB LINK: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=96598.0;topicseen

Here is a link to my Discord Server as well if anyone wants to join and talk with me, etc.
https://discord.gg/ayVXBKy

Update: (07/07/2018) - Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed the holiday! I am coming back to announce that we will be starting the GB for GMK Metaverse Mid July - The dates planned so far are to start on 07/16/18!!!!!!! HYPE!!!!!!  :cool: I will be creating a new GB post here and on other forums as well. Please make sure to join the discord linked above for all news and to speak with me about any questions you have as well!


Update: (06/18/2018) - Hello everyone! I am excited to announce yet another amazing collaboration we will have for the GB of GMK Metaverse!  :cool: Ramaworks is going to be offering exclusive designed artisans for Metaverse! For more details and images please check out their project page here:

https://rama.works/projectupdates/2018/6/18/rama-x-metaverse



Update: (06/14/2018) - Hello again! So we got updated renders back from GMK, but there were still some issues with the novelties that I needed to be changed. Want to make sure they are on point. So, we have sent back feedback and requested the changes to GMK. Once we get them back and I am fine with how they look, we will request pricing and finalize the kits. Hope everyone has a great weekend!


Update: (05/28/2018) - Greetings everyone! Just wanted to let you know at this point we are just waiting on GMK to get back to us about kit pricing etc. From what I understand the main point of contact is on Vacation right now and will not be back until 6/4/18. Once he returns, I am hoping we get our feedback / pricing and renders from GMK to confirm we have everything in order. After we sort all that fun stuff out, we will be announcing the GB dates!


Update: (05/17/2018) - An exciting announcement for the future GB! After collaboration with some amazing artists, we are proud to announce that the first 50 orders (limted per person) will receive one of these 3 beautiful slaps (stickers) with their purchase!
Here are links to their websites. Make sure to check them out and give a shoutout!







Update: (04/24/2018) - Just some fresh renders of the beautiful M60-Moon with Metaverse Grey Kit options...a thing of beauty!






Update: (04/22/2018) - Hello again everyone! I am so happy to update that based on the vote and other requests / input I have received from you that we now have a finalized base kit and even updated some of our other kits like the "Grey" kit and "Spacebar" kit to include a 6u offset spacebar. The kits have been updated on the original / top post above.

Now, for a nice treat...thanks and a big shoutout to Janglad for letting us use his beautiful M0110 models. Also keep an eye out, I have so many other surprise announcements and hopeful collaborations coming in the next few weeks. Have a good rest of the weekend!  :cool:






Update: (04/18/2018) - Again So, this is my original idea of how I wanted to run the icon mods / set. Please let me know what you think. I think I will be happy either with this image posted below's style or the first renders I made with the icon bottom row. Please make sure to vote and let your decision be heard so we can move forward.

Thanks again.
Form and image below:

Vote ended with "Original Concept" Winning






Update: (04/18/2018) I have updated the renders above to reflect the updated Grey (Shadow) Kit based on recommendations and also updated the Persona Kit (Novelties)...check out the newest additions  :cool:

Update: (04/17/2018) Ohhhhh....when you wish that M10-B was in your hands....I am working on getting the two set renders but it may take a little more time due to having to pay the bills with my other company. I am so inspired by all of your feedback and support! I can't wait to share more images and ideas with all of you!

This is an amazing set. This is how you do a IC. Not ****ty KLE screenshots, but full blown GMK + board renders.

CP instead of WS1 please. WS1 is way to bright.

Full on shadow alphas would be dope af, but probably too expensive for most to swallow.

Very impressive set. It's gotten me all giddy.

Wow, really nice concept, love the colors, love Persona. The only gripe I have is with the bottom row icon modifiers, it could be just me, but they are really ugly.

You have a buyer in me with bottom row text mods!

edit: also...about that caps lock icon...you know that's not a GMK icon, right?

Some of the icons had to be approximated since they're not widely available for render usage.

This is just awesome, I really like pretty everything about this set! Both the red/black & grey setups look lovely, the compatibility looks good, can't see no reason other than my financials at the time if this runs as to why I would not buy one of these sets. Great work & hopefully you can get this to GB, GL with it Dead Encryption! :thumb:

jesus christ now that's how you start a thread. I've never wanted to play Persona but now I do. Of all the hiragana hype driven sets recently, this is by far the best.

Going to update the renders with brighter lighting / adjust shadows to reflect the natural colors better. Will update all the images / IC once I'm finished getting them completed.

Not likely. Getting an extra set of alphas to MOQ isn't feasible for smaller sets.

Kind of the same question, but an Alphas-only pack is probably not likely too right?

(Not JP-character only, if someone just wanted the alphas).

Can't say I'm a fan of the color of the alphas or the mod legends but, as a fan of Persona, I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

I'll speak up and say I'm one of the few people who likes the bottom row icon mods. It keeps the mods free of computer jargon which keeps the 60% cluster looking more stylised.

Love it, I guess it's a sort of Honeywell with katakana alphas and icon mods?

Though as a Mac user, I kinda take issue with where you put the ⌥ key, as that is the Mac-equivalent of the Alt key. The symbol itself ⌥ stands for "an alternate route" or "a fork in the road".

Either the diamond symbol ◇ or the control symbol ^ would be a better fit there 🙂

I think this would look great with the Black-Red-Black E6-V2 I ordered but I'm just not too into the super white alphas. While I'd prefer them to not be white, a less bright white would be more bearable.

I've been thinking about a nice looking black and red keyset for a while now, since Forge and Led Zeppelin didn't jump out to me, and I've been thinking about relating it to Persona 5 but I just don't have the creative talent/spark.
