No relation to Palmer Luckey.
The Oculus Rift is already an established name in virtual reality gaming, but it will really pick up steam in 2016 when everyone can finally buy their own. No need to worry about pre-ordering games yet, because every Oculus Rift will come with a free copy of Lucky’s Tale, a made-for-VR platformer.
The latest blog on the official Oculus website shares some details about Lucky’s Tale. The game was developed by Playful, a company that has made several game prototypes for the Rift over the past few years. Playful’s founder Paul Bettner pledged $5,000 in the Rift’s Kickstarter, and was inspired to create this game after touring Oculus HQ.
The post also included a gameplay video of Lucky’s Tale. The game will likely be controlled with the Xbox One controller that is bundled with every Rift unit.
Lucky’s Tale will be bundled with every Oculus Rift unit when it ships in the first quarter of 2016. Pre-orders aren’t live yet, but the company has released the PC specifications needed for the headset.
