I'm not sure if that black piece actually touching the white king is supposed to be the black king or queen. I originally looked at it as the queen. However, if it is the king then you are correct, not to mention that it wouldn't even have been able to get into that position due to putting itself in check multiple times before it got there :-P. Great concept though, maybe the pieces could have been symbolized a little better to clear confusion.

its the black queen. you are correct. i suppose that is the biggest issue with the design. its not obvious enough i guess. its just im not sure how to make it more so. in most of the chess piece icons i looked at for references the king and queen pieces look very similar but with minor differences(the king was more bulbous and the queen more spiky, the king usually has a cross, and queen more points on the crown, etc.). but when it comes down to it, it would just be up to the viewer knowing how chess works to realize that the only way it could be checkmate is is that black piece there is the queen.

incidentally i even made sure the right squares were black and white for the set up of the scenario so its totally on the level.
