clarified on the linked page that Adam came up with the core idea and I've refined it.

Adam and myself are appropriate as joint inventors

Published. The page linked to mentions a different inventor for this game than this page does. Are they the same person? Who should be credited as the inventors of this game?

So a pawn on d4/e5 can only switch between those two locations (similarly for d5/e4), until an opportunity to capture arises? I guess the four-directional capture partially makes up for their dramatically lower ability to promote? How have pawn structures developed, in playtesting?

Why convert the knight as well? (It might be worth noting the common name for that piece, the camel.)
