Psychological Horror's popularity amongst developers
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Psychological Horror tag and the percentage of games released on Steam they account for.

The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better idea of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Psychological Horror tag is getting more or less popular from a developer's perspective. 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.
