It's worth noting, I think, that this game was apparently preceded by the similar Vortex Chess. In Warp Point Chess, each side gets to use two portals that coordinate with one another. The 'warp points' replace the knights (in Grand Warp Point Chess, the knights get to stay in the game) and the 'warp points' move like knights, but as with knight relay chess, they are denied the ability to capture or be captured. In Vortex chess, the portals act together much the same way (as spots through which pieces may move) but there are only two of them and they are split between the two players. The portals in Vortex Chess move, by teleportation. Here is a version of Vortex Chess with two pairs of Portals instead.
