Point & Click's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Point & Click tag and the percentage 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, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Point & Click tag is getting more or less popular. 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 Point & Click tag has peaked in 2022, with 670 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 1.2% in 2014 and 0.4% in 2019.
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.
