Straylight Studios was a game development studio based in Dunedin, New Zealand, active from March 2004-March 2009.

Straylight's focus was on the application of "Meaningful Play", a term coined by Nixon to describe play that borrows from Serious Games and Casual Games to produce an entertaining and meaningful (if not strictly "educational") experience.

From 2007, Straylight was located in the Central Business District of Dunedin. Prior to that, it was in the Centre for Innovation research facility at the University of Otago.

Early in 2008, Nixon launched his blog to promote and encourage discussion about the application of gaming technology as a learning tool.
