Space's popularity amongst developers
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Space tag and the percentage of games released on Steam they account for. 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 Space 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 Space game tag peaked in 2021 with 574 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.74% in 2010 and 0.34% in 2022.
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.
Space's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Space tag, either as count and as a percentage of all Steam reviews, and the average value for a game. If the graph is hard to read, 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 Space tag games.
A standard game associated with this tag received on average between 43 (2010) and 810 (2020) 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 Space tag received between 102% (2011) and 188% (2020) reviews compared to other tags.
Price of games tagged with Space
This graph displays the evolution of the Space 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.
The median price for Space games peaked in 2011 at 11.49$, and bottomed in 2020 at 4.99$. The percentage of free to play peaked in 2020 at 16%, and bottomed in 2023 at 1%.
Positive reviews ratio for Space, per language
This graph shows an aggregated Steam rating for the whole Space tag, separated by language. It helps estimate how different audiences judge a game with this tag. A lower rating doesn't always mean that the audience doesn't enjoy that particular tag, as some cultures tend to always give lower scores. But it will affect a game's rating nonetheless.
The highest rating for Space is 93% for the Romanian language, and the lowest is 78% for the Japanese language.
