Tag created in June 2017
Rogue-like's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Rogue-like 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 idea of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Rogue-like 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.
The Rogue-like game tag peaked in 2022 with 647 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.11% in 2010 and 0.59% in 2023.
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.
Rogue-like's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Rogue-like tag, either as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the average value for a game. Note that if the normalized and average lines are too small, you can deactivate the review count and % of the average lines by clicking on the legend.
The review count gives a view of the sheer amount of reviews a tag receives, but it also follows the popularity of Steam itself. That is why the normalized value as a percentage of all Steam reviews is often more interesting, as it gives you the popularity trend for Rogue-like tag games.
A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 12 (2010) and 873 (2014) reviews. Keep in mind that it is the average and not the median, meaning it is heavily influenced by extreme values, like a very successful game with this tag.
The reviews per game as a percentage of the average show that games in the Rogue-like tag received between 32% (2010) and 357% (2012) reviews compared to other tags.
Price of games tagged with Rogue-like
This graph displays the evolution of the Rogue-like tag's games price in USD over the years, and the percentage of free to play games in this tag. Bear in mind that there is inflation over time, which means that a price should slowly increase just to keep the same value.
