Science's popularity amongst developers
This graph shows games released over the years with the Science 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 Science tag is getting more or less popular from a developer's perspective.

The Science game tag peaked in 2022 with 128 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.02% in 2012 and 0.08% in 2022.
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.
