Swordplay's popularity amongst developers
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Swordplay 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 Swordplay 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 Swordplay game tag peaked in 2022 with 126 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.02% in 2012 and 0.08% in 2020.
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.

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.
