Hack and Slash's popularity amongst developers
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Hack and Slash tag and the percentage of games released on Steam they account for. 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 Hack and Slash 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 Hack and Slash game tag peaked in 2022 with 453 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.61% in 2012 and 0.17% in 2018.
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.
