Central Core
The central core infected by the Symbiote. Retains type variant ISO-UK. Combine with other forms to reach maximum potential of the evolution cycle.


Standard Galactic
It tries to communicate with you using strange glyphs. The Standard Galactic Alphabet (SGA), originally created for the Commander Keen video game series. Replaces keys from A-Z.


Metamorphosis
Allows the Symbiote to adapt to even more types of different hosts. A metamorphic transformation that grows various tentacle lengths in the process.


Anomaly
A specialized form of the Symbiote able to combine with even the rarest of host machines.


Mutation
A mutation that spreads to all available vertical host columns. Includes mutation variants [M1-M10].


Containment
Activate containment protocol S.Y.M.B. in an attempt to prevent the Symbiote from consuming everything.


Sequence
The Symbiote sequence. Purpose unknown. Infects the entire F-row or any vertical column. Trait [F13] does not offer protection against the sequence.


Membrane

*TRANSLUCENT*
The Symbiote develops external translucent membranes across the surface of the host.

* MEMBRANE KIT DISCLAIMER

The visible inner structure of the doubleshot Membrane keycaps may differ in the final product. The inner “shot” was not originally designed to be seen and was meant to only be functional in the structure of the cap. This means that aesthetics of the inner shot are not regulated and will vary in how they will look showing through the translucent outer layer. We are using this as an opportunity for a unique aesthetic that goes beyond what the inner shot is meant for. The render here is showing the caps in the best scenarios, but the caps have a chance to have a more deformed or “mushed” look instead of the perfect mesh look in our renders. Even if this is the case, the aesthetic still fits within the theme of the set to achieve an imperfect organic look. Caps have been made with this method in the past for you to get a sense of what to expect. One major difference between the caps in this album and the membrane caps is that the legend/inner shot and the outer shot are similar colors to each other to achieve a "tone-on-tone" look. The Membrane caps have a warm white legend/inner shot with a light pink outer translucent layer which is higher contrast. By purchasing this product, you are agreeing to these terms.
