Chess has always been chess. But there’s been silly variants available, like Chess 2. However, this is the most mind-boggling variant of Chess to be released yet.
5D Chess With Multiverse Time Traveling is exactly what it says. Alongside the 2 spatial dimensions that is in on a traditional chess board, the game also adds in temporal and parallel dimension. What this means is that you can send a rook in the past to make a check. Or save a king in the past out of check by moving them into the present so you have a board with two kings.
The chessboards of a match will diverge into multiple timelines/parallel universes if you push a chess piece in the past, avoiding time paradoxes. So if the current timeline doesn’t look good for a victory chance, you can push the game onto another timeline.
Memes about playing 4D chess are a thing. But now you can play 5D chess for real.
5D Chess With Multiverse Time Traveling includes a puzzle mode, a practice mode (including local hotseat multiplayer), CPU mode where you play against the AI and Online mode. The chessboard also comes in different configurations including a smaller 6×6 board too.
