Straylight enables you to look into the beautiful, deadly universe and travel through the thousands of blue stars that dot the void. You can swing through abstract, cosmic environments, soaring from point to point and slinging to new heights.

Regardless of the skill level, each player will enjoy this thrilling immersive space flight journey. The soundscape has been created by the acclaimed pianist, and video game arrangement artist 88bit for this galactic playground voted “Best in Show” and “People’s Choice: Best Digital” at Ohayocon 2020.
