With a name like 10-directional Chess, I was expecting a new 10-directional
topography, though I'm hard-pressed to think of what that would be like.
Among people who play Chess variants, the name Fischer normally brings to
mind Bobby Fischer. I can't say I've ever heard of Joschka Fischer. The
Fischer piece was used in Mad Chess, where it was called a Unicorn.

I haven't played this game yet. On the plus side, there is a minimal
learning curve. On the minus side, its differences from Chess are minimal
and don't seem all that intriguing.
