The Astra Fund, a venture fund that supports developers making “thinking games” or “cognitively challenging games,” revealed the first batch of games it will be funding, including an unannounced title from Good Sudoku developer Zach Gage.

The first games from the bunch are expected to come out in the fourth quarter of 2022, while “a lot of them” will be released in 2023, said Eileen Hollinger, Astra Fund Co-Founder.

Here is the list of games:

  • A game from Furniture & Mattress, a new indie studio that includes Braid artist David Hellman, with an unannounced title
