Cyan's tech lead, Richard Watson (also known as RAWA) is well aware of 
LiveCode, and has been for more than a decade.  I know because I've 
corresponded with him about porting some older stacks, as has at least 
one other LC dev I know.

So I would imagine Rand is equally familiar with LiveCode.

If they're not using LC currently it may be for the same reason 
HyperCard was never used after Riven: modern immersive games require 
real-time 3D, something no xTalk offers.
