Cooking's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Cooking tag and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. The number of releases gives an appreciation of the quantity of games published each year. It often tends to increase naturally, just like the total amount of Steam games released.
The percentage gives a better estimate of the tag's trend. It shows if the Cooking tag is getting more or less popular amongst developers. The Review chart will tell us if this trend is a good thing (i.e. players interest is increasing, tag is undercrowded) or if it's the opposite.
The Cooking tag has peaked in 2022, with 118 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.01% in 2015 and 0.08% in 2022.
