Love the board/piece images and the pseudo-history gives the game a nice touch. A comment regarding the quickest mate of 3 moves must be in error as the rules state: 'White moves first, and makes eight moves, none of which may cross the center-line of the board (marked by a heavier line), then Black makes eight moves with the same restriction, and then play alternates without the restriction.' I will hold off on rating the game at this time as I've not played it yet. But it looks promising.
