Higher Dimensional Chess

In this video by Allen Pan (How to Play 4D Chess), it is shown that you can represent a 4-d chess board by ‘unfolding’ the fourth dimension in such a way that moving in the fourth dimension translates the chess piece to a ‘different board’ (even though it is not really a different board I couldn’t think of a better way to explain it). I assume this could be done in the other direction to make a 5-d set and even a 6-d set, but could this be done for any number of dimensions? Does this have any application outside of chess (maybe with a continuous plane rather than a discrete one)?
