I'm somewhere between being impressed and wondering how many of those games are terrible.

Is this the date they were released on steam or the date of first release? Some old titles have 'new' release dates on steam. >

it's the date that is reported in the game's "release date" field.

Offworld Trading Company's app ID is 271240. Our newest DLC is 561150. So, midpoint by app ID (including DLC) was early 2015.

I'm pretty sure they are, we released in 2012 as 218410 for example, should be easy to verify in any case

hmmm -- not perfectly sequential, but I think that's because app ID's are assigned before release

not sure, but based on how they have been given to us, seems highly likely.

if you allow for some variance in time between app ID assignment and eventual release

for instance, I'm sitting on an App ID for several years now that I need to release soon

also consider that publishers can hoard their app ID's for years and then use them for fresh games anytime

And, unless my sums are wrong, by the end of 2015 42% of Steam games were released in 2015. Though 2016 isn't over.
