Real-Time's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Real-Time 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 Real-Time 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 Real-Time game tag peaked in 2020 with 66 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.22% in 2011 and 0.01% in 2022.
