' 1. d2-d4 e7-e5 2. d4-d5 e5x d4 ep' --- How is this 'ep'? Did the author understand the rules of chess?

No, no, it's different. en passant is optional, remember? ;-)

This is exactly the same as traditional chess, not a new game. There is absolutely no new gameplay here, only a new way of viewing. From the ceiling, it is undistinguishable from normal chess.

The only thing we need are chess pieces large enough and permission to use the public stairs.

This page is very funny and unusual. It is strange to imagine pawn coming down(or up) stairs. I would like to try and play this sometime. It seems like black is the castle and white is the peasants(black starts highter than white). I really like this page.
