OK - wait for it: Monkey Island Chess!
Chessboard drawn on the same perspective as the typical game scenes. Game background behind the chessboard. Chess pieces are MI characters and they walk across the chessboard when a move is made. 1 player (vs computer) and 2 player. Make some changes to the pallete of the piece colours for the two sides (e.g. one side is more 'blue', other side is more 'red'). Pieces as follows:
King - LeChuck
Queen - H0m0 Stan
Knight - Skeleton first mate from LeChuck's ship
Rook - Meathook
Bishop - Three headed monkey
Pawns - Cannibals
Looking forward to it!
