    Lucky's (not Luckey's) Tale. Paul Bettner, CEO of Playful Corp, claims it isn't named after Palmer Luckey. Although the name is weirdly coincidental as it was portrayed as a game produced by Palmer IIRC.

    Corrected, ta. I was always of the impression Palmer was involved, too - wonder if they allowed that impression to go forward when he was still flavour of the month, or if he *was* involved and they're retconning him out now.

    From the various talks and interviews given by Bettner at Oculus Connect, GDC, etc, the development of Lucky's Tale had little directly to do with Palmer himself beyond the initial partnership with Playful to do the rapid locomotion & control prototype series in 2013 (culminating in the 'bouncing pill' third-person platforming prototype that eventually became Lucky's Tale) .
