[IC] GMK DMG - A Gameboy inspired keyset GROUP BUY IS LIVE!
« on: Tue, 14 August 2018, 16:50:41 »
THE GROUP BUY IS LIVE

NOW HERE: https://thekey.company/products/gmk-dmg
ASIA and EU proxies up very soon. Thanks for playing!










(We're awaiting an updated render from GMK with the correct mod colour grey, but these are the correct keys in the pocket kit)






OLD KITS:

INTEREST CHECK

Hello keyboard enthusiasts, you all like Nintendo right? Well here's a nice keyset based on the original Gameboy colours. Hopefully something fun, but fairly understated, and with a nice dose of nostalgia.  Gunpei Yokoi's revolutionary little funbox was codenamed 'Dot Matrix Game' during development, which carried over to the product model number 'DMG-01'.  So here we go, it's:













KITS

The base kit hopefully manages that difficult balance of compatibility and affordability, but I welcome community feedback as I'm no expert in this regard, especially when it comes to the slightly more esoteric layouts (I only really use 65% and TKL). I'd personally really like a Colevrak kit as I'm a Colemak user so speak up if you're interested in that. If enough people want something, I'm sure we can accomodate. And if people like the set, once we've hammered out the details we'll get some nice renders done to have a good stare at instead of my shonky photoshopped kle things.


COLOURS

UPDATED 4th Sept '18 - I've been in contact with Uniqey/GMK and they've confirmed that I can just send them a Gameboy for them to match the colours to. This will ensure the best colour accuracy and was my biggest hope from the start so I'm really happy they're able to do it and are up for it. The representative I spoke with seemed genuinely enthusiastic about it and thinks it's gonna be a fun project. All I have to do now is find the closest thing to a NIB Gameboy I can, (mine is good but I think probably very slightly yellowed), without spending insane amounts on ebay. Fresh lookin' Gameboy acquired!

I've mocked this up for ease of reference. The colours on the Gameboy should be taken as the goal, rather than the mock ups of the kits, which may not match exactly. We'll have nicer renders soon anyway  :D



VENDORS

Now then, I've never run a GB and have no burning desire to handle the logistics of one, so I'm very pleased to say that side of things will be left in the more than capable hands of Jason at TKC https://thekey.company/, runner of GMK Terminal, GMK Led Zep, DSA Drifter, the TKC1800, etc. Rest assured, he knows his stuff. There'll be the usual proxies to make things better for international buyers.


More
NOVELTIES

I'll be straight with you. I've never bought any novelty packs. But I have a few ideas, and I welcome the community to get involved here as well. If we can come up with something special I'm sure we can offer it up in the GB. I'd really like to include a translucent green cap, in the Gameboy screen colour, similar to how GMK Camping included the translucent fire cap. This could be blank or include a printed legend, but I don't know what of. I've also included a 'battery' windowed 1u key in the base kit. This would have to be pad printed and would be dependant on whether the word will even fit on a 1u key.


TIMEFRAME

Well, there's no shortage of GMK GBs running at any given time so there's no use waiting for a gap. The Key Company have some other things in the pipeline so this set won't run for a while, but if people are into it then hopefully the good word can spread and by the time the GB launches there'll be huge swathes of you all ready to pounce and help turn these ideas into beautiful, cold, hard, doubleshot ABS plastic.


SUPPORT

If you wanna show support for the set and spread the word then you can stick this code in your signature to get this little image in there which links to this IC:

PS. Thanks to Plex for the original keyboard render and Xondat for use of the 280 (even though I didn't ask permission).

EDIT: Added a 40s kit and changed the spacebar kit to just include accent colour mini-spacebars.
EDIT 2: Added colour guide and sig.

Couldn't agree more. But this will most likely be a launch day buy for me. That color combo is perfect.

It’d be more awesome with a black WASZ cluster, and if we can agree on 2 1u magenta alpha keycaps  :thumb:

Maybe “N” and “I”, like a low key nod to Nintendo? Or “G” and “Y”, for Gunpei Yokoi?

Some sort of 1.5u OS key like “super” (for Mac users) would be great! Also agree with some sort of WASD ACCENT, since this is a game-inspired kit

Love the theme and colors of this set. I don't think you have to go crazy with novelties, even just a couple artisans such as the translucent cap (green to represent the screen) or an artisan, like Rama's wave cap to represent the ridges on the back would be fun  ;D

Would love to see some text modifier, such as 'select' and 'start' along with the the magenta color arrow keys.

This is completely extra, but I love the IC picture based off the original box and would think it would be neat to have a deskpad with that kind of design or aesthetic.

It‘s super brilliant, but when used with a red LED, it also might give you that bad gut feeling of low battery and having no new ones around..! (aka running around the house and searching for devices less important so you can take the batteries from them..)

For what it's worth I like the darker colors of your set + matching text on the mods better than the originative set. Not feeling SNES CO at all.

Interested at least, and would buy for sure with good novelties.

Only thing with the base set is that I would prefer the R3 "Ctrl" to be "Control" to be consistent with other keys. 
Also, a nice touch to the newer GMK sets is the R4 Caps Lock.  I don't think it is necessary (even to me), but I think it should be considered if it does push up the price too much.

Re: [IC] GMK DMG - A Gameboy inspired keyset - 40s KIT ADDED
« Reply #36 on: Wed, 15 August 2018, 18:43:18 »
I've added a Pocket Kit for 40s. This matches the GMK Terminal 40s kit. I'm not sure how many of these text mod moulds would need to be made so perhaps it may be prohibitively expensive, but we'll see. I've also changed up the spacebar kit to only include accent colour spacebars, which will bring the price down for that set.

I'll respond to some more of your comments tomorrow. Had a long day at work and am off to sleep now.  :blank:

This is just adorable. I'm not really into the retro GMK aesthetic, but I really like this! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for novelties (something subtle like Start and Select keys would be to my taste). The battery key is already basically an awesome subtle novelty and I'm glad it's in the base set!

I think this set would be really neat on a small ortho board like a Planck... I'm just concerned about the cost and number of leftover keys if I want to go that route  ;)
Also if I use this set for an ortho board I'd probably want Dvorak support -- any word on a colevrak kit?

1.25 Blanks please

Also, I would personally not join if "Control" legends are there, "Ctrl" is more elegant, "Control" always looks awkward on 1.25 keycaps and 1.75 stepped keycap (I use the 1.75 Stepped "Ctrl")

Awesome keyset in general, you can count me in if you change your mind about the "Control" :)

Good base set with compatibility.  Couldn't this be enjoyPBT dyesubs though? Mostly dark legends on a light background.

Also, I prefer "Control" over "Ctrl" with this set, it's in keeping with the word only modifiers and retro aesthetic.

OK, I have time to answer a few queries tonight!



Proxy EU and i'm in

KMK Labs.


There'll certainly be an EU proxy. That side of things is down to Jason at TKC.


I love the theme, but I think the one thing missing is some representation of that good ol' green screen.

Couldn't agree more. But this will most likely be a launch day buy for me. That color combo is perfect.


Yeah I've tried a bunch of ways to get it in but the set gets very busy. I'm really gunning for the translucent green cap at least, I reckon that'd look really nice.


Love the theme and colors of this set. I don't think you have to go crazy with novelties, even just a couple artisans such as the translucent cap (green to represent the screen) or an artisan, like Rama's wave cap to represent the ridges on the back would be fun  ;D

Would love to see some text modifier, such as 'select' and 'start' along with the the magenta color arrow keys.

This is completely extra, but I love the IC picture based off the original box and would think it would be neat to have a deskpad with that kind of design or aesthetic.


If the set gains traction I'd also be up for doing a matching deskmat, it's all the rage right now innit.



Some sort of 1.5u OS key like “super” (for Mac users) would be great! Also agree with some sort of WASD ACCENT, since this is a game-inspired kit


I appreciate the desire for a Super key, but I think Code is a decent OS agnostic key. Catering to Mac, Windows and Linux users seperately with all the different size variations would unfortunately increase the cost significantly.



Thanks for the support guys. Just spoke to Jason and we'll defo be offering up a 40s kit. Will mock it up asap.

Don’t forget about the Minivan. 😁


Hopefully the Pocket Kit should give you enough to cover the Minivan.



Battery key is brilliant. All over this.


I hope to one day see it immortalised on the table.

Yeah I'm aware of the SNES set. It's been in the wings for ages. I think this set is different enough to co-exist, and personally I prefer it (quelle surprise).



Interested at least, and would buy for sure with good novelties.

Only thing with the base set is that I would prefer the R3 "Ctrl" to be "Control" to be consistent with other keys. 
Also, a nice touch to the newer GMK sets is the R4 Caps Lock.  I don't think it is necessary (even to me), but I think it should be considered if it does push up the price too much.


Nice catch. I've fixed it now.  What would the R4 Caps Lock be used for? Do people swap it out with Control?



This is just adorable. I'm not really into the retro GMK aesthetic, but I really like this! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for novelties (something subtle like Start and Select keys would be to my taste).

Also if I use this set for an ortho board I'd probably want Dvorak support -- any word on a colevrak kit?




I'd love to do a Colevrak kit but they only really hit moq with hugely succesful sets on Massdrop. Hopefully we can offer it anyway, even if the chances of it hitting are super slim.



1.25 Blanks please

Also, I would personally not join if "Control" legends are there, "Ctrl" is more elegant, "Control" always looks awkward on 1.25 keycaps and 1.75 stepped keycap (I use the 1.75 Stepped "Ctrl")

Awesome keyset in general, you can count me in if you change your mind about the "Control" :)


Are you only concerned about the R4 Control keys, or the R3 as well? I personally prefer the full word and think it fits the set better but if there's a general opinion that Ctrl is better then people can speak up and I'll go with the vote.

I like “code” as well, I just used “super” as an example- but the OS key on a Mac is a 1.5u key and I don’t see it in the base kit. Still excited for this set, it’d just be nice to have an OS key as something else other than “alt” :)

Make this happen! Nostalgia is in full effect.
