Adventure's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Adventure tag and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. The releases count conveys the quantity of games published on Steam each year. It usually follows the increasing amount of Steam games released.
The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Adventure tag is getting more or less popular. The Review chart can let us know if this trend is a positive thing (i.e. players interest for the tag is growing) or a negative one (the tag is overcrowded).
The Adventure game tag peaked in 2022 with 3915 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 4.7% in 2017 and 2.5% in 2023.
Keep in mind that the current year is not over, so the number of games released will still increase. But the percentage is usually a good estimate.
