Tactical's popularity amongst developers
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Tactical 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 view of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Tactical tag is getting more or less popular. 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 Tactical game tag peaked in 2022 with 578 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.75% in 2011 and 0.23% in 2018.
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.
