Steampunk's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Steampunk tag and the percentage of total Steam releases 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 Steampunk 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 Steampunk game tag peaked in 2021 with 48 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.3% in 2012 and 0.03% 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.
Steampunk's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Steampunk 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 Steampunk tag games.
A typical game associated with this tag collected on average between 66 (2010) and 1040 (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 Steampunk tag received between 96% (2023) and 214% (2018) reviews compared to other tags.
