complete chessboard by BadgersBakery complete chessboard by BadgersBakery
All of the pieces set up on a wooden chessboard. The blue/red squares are selections ofc.

( Wood textures from vyonyx.com )

Closeups:
Fire pieces: [link]
Water pieces: [link]

[edit:]a DD?! Thank you so much! :faint:

[edit2:] Playable version available here -> [link] . Network multiplayer supported, but there's a small bug - you need to write down your Ip adress instead of 0.0.0.0 :p

To run the game:
- download winRAR to unpack the files [link]
- try to run chess.jar
- if it doesn't work download Java Runtime Environment [link]

What a great idea to create a chess game with figures made from the elements. The details complete chessboard by ~Krufka are very lovely and there is even a playable version of it. ( Featured by Lilyas )

The game requires Java Runtime Environment to run, most people had it installed automatically to run various web applications but if you don't have it you can download it here I guess -> www.java.com

Although aren't the letters usually written in lowercase? e4 - e5, etc.? Kf3?

I love this design! I can't help feeling you would get confused about what piece was what when they moved out of the starting position though! Although they are all quite distinctive so I guess you would get used to it. I particularly like the way the squids are pointed like bishops and both colour knights.

:iconbadgersbakery:
BadgersBakery Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011
thanks! I think I liked those squids the most :psychotic:

You do get used to the shape of the pieces, I've played one game with it and didn't have much trouble. Ofc I've been looking at them for a looong time :p

Wow, what a cool idea! Each piece looks really good, you chose the designs for each very well.
I especially like the coloring!
Are you planning to do more for Earth and Wind? :)
It'd be really cool to see your take on other elements too.
