8.7 million dollars when all the devs wanted was 10,000.  Over 200k people who bought the NSFW deck.  Probably going to be quite interesting.

ketaro:
Know what sucks though?

There's no way to legitimately spend almost 9 million dollars developing that game.
Those guys totally banked on that shit all hardcore like.

phaedrusxy:
That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen... How the hell could this get 9 million in funding? I've been kicking around a kickstarter idea myself, which is a lot more interesting and beneficial to mankind than this BS... (medical drones for use in remote and/or dense urban areas) I guess it's time to get it going.

Nanshork:
I think the fact that the guy behind The Oatmeal was a part of the game had a huge amount to do with it. 

Edit: Games also tend to be the biggest draws since people get cool tangible rewards.

Would having a Dr. drone give you an in-home visit be a decent reward? (Let's call this marketing research :p)
