Turn-Based Strategy's popularity amongst developers
This chart shows the amount of games released over the years with the Turn-Based Strategy 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 Turn-Based Strategy 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 Turn-Based Strategy game tag peaked in 2022 with 495 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.59% in 2010 and 0.21% in 2019.
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.
