Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

I missed this model at the time of its publication and learned about it only from the Chonky Kong post.

So the files of Kong, another ortholinear board with a twist, were shared by weteor about two months ago.

It perfectly fits the author's Orthocade family, a line of ortho boards with the hallmark offset bottom row, and each of the models named after a retro game.

If you'd like a numpad in the center, check out the Chonky Kong, which is an updated/extended version of the Kong.
