Rogue-lite's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Rogue-lite tag and the percentage they represent. The releases count conveys the quantity of games published on Steam each year. It usually follows the increasing 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-lite tag is getting more or less popular from a developer's perspective. The Review chart can let us know if this trend is a positive thing (i.e. players interest for the tag is growing) or a negative one (the tag is overcrowded).
The Rogue-lite tag has peaked in 2022, with 631 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.04% in 2010 and 0.55% 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.
