Cool, thanks for verifying Joel.  You should bounce this idea off ChessWhiz, who does Twitch and YouTube demonstrations of variants.  He sometimes has guests on to explain their variant and play a game with him via Lichess/Skype.  I thought yours would interest him, because he mostly plays the 8x8 standard board with standard pieces and slightly different rules.  For Diagonal Pawn Chess, you could just use the Board Editor to make the diagonal pawn's non-capture moves.
