XDA 8-Bit is a dye-sublimated PBT keycap set. It was sold as part of a group buy in November 2017 and extras were sold as in-stock items on TheVanKeyboards.com.
XDA 8-Bit is inspired by retro gaming from the 8-bit era of gaming consoles and specifically the original Nintendo. Featuring blocky font and icons alongside a clean two-tone gray and red, the set was designed as a nod to the nostalgic memories of playing games on those early consoles.
A matching limited edition painted aluminum case was created for XDA 8-Bit and was sold as part of a series of "ARTIZEN" MiniVans.
XDA 8-Bit was produced in five different kits in order to maximize compatibility with a wide array of boards. XDA is a uniform keycap profile (no per-row sculpt) so some keys that may appear missing (like
Caps Lock in the 100% Completion kit) may actually be included elsewhere (bottom row
LOCK key in the World 1-1 base kit).
