Zombies's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Zombies tag and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. The number of releases gives a sense of the amount of games published each year. It often increases, following 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 Zombies 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 Zombies game tag peaked in 2021 with 353 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.46% in 2013 and 0.22% in 2020.
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.
Zombies's popularity amongst players
This chart shows the reviews for games with the Zombies 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 Zombies tag games.
A standard game associated with this tag received on average between 121 (2010) and 1707 (2014) reviews. Bear in mind that it is the average, and it can be strongly influenced by extreme values, like the release of a very popular game with this tag.
The reviews per game as a percentage of the average show that games in the Zombies tag received between 210% (2022) and 346% (2017) reviews compared to other tags.
Price of games tagged with Zombies
This chart displays the evolution of the Zombies tag's games price in USD over time, as well as the percentage of free games in this tag. Bear in mind that there is inflation over time, which means that a price should slowly increase just to keep the same value.

Positive reviews ratio for Zombies, per language
This chart shows an aggregated Steam rating for all the Zombies tag games, classed by language. It gives an idea about how different audiences will judge a game with this tag.

The best rating for Zombies games is 93% for the Spanish - Latin America audience, and the worst is 76% for the Japanese audience.
