Tag created in June 2017
Dark Fantasy's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Dark Fantasy 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 Dark Fantasy 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 Dark Fantasy tag has peaked in 2022, with 459 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.13% in 2016 and 0.3% in 2022.
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.
