Turn-Based's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Turn-Based 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 Turn-Based 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 Turn-Based tag has peaked in 2019, with 233 games released. The popularity of the tag is in a range between 0.85% in 2014 and 0.06% 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.
