Kickstarter's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Kickstarter tag and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. The number of releases gives a sense of the amount of games published each year. It often increases, following the total amount of Steam games released.
The percentage gives a better estimate of the tag's trend. It shows if the Kickstarter 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 Kickstarter tag has peaked in 2017, with 31 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.19% in 2013 and 0.0021% in 2023.
Bear in mind that 2023 is not over yet. The number of releases will continue to increase, but the percentage is already a good estimate of things to come.
