No it didnt. Stop making stuff up about a company you have barely looked into, and trying to pass it off as fact. YOU might have heard about it becausenof cheesecake, but it took off LONG before that.
They took off when they introduced the Wet Nurse, which spread like wildfire because of the shockvalue of it. Then people would go to buy one, and find that it was already sold out because it was made by an indie sculptor who didnt expect that kind of response. So they would look around, see high detailed minis, and maybe buy one. Eventually EVERYTHING goes out of stock. So poots restocks, using the surge in funding to get more product. People by the wet nurse, people by everything else, repeat. Eventually he starts working on more human figures to add to the collection, because they are an important part of the setting. He makes a deal with some guy to get some high detailed minis done. The guy offers to make cheesecake minis on the side, cause he likes making cheesecake minis. Poots agrees, under a long term (but not exclusive) contract with the guy, and the two start making more models. People start going to by the wet nurse, and see cheesecake models, this causes another surge in popularity, from a different audience. The ones who like porn minis instead of monsters. Poots is now catering to two different demographics with his product line, and starts labling the cheesecake minis with a PINUP tag so retards like you dont get it confused and think its part of the actual setting.
Then retards like you get it confused with the actual setting.
Then poots used his funds to hire a fuckton of sculpters and artists, and sets up a kickstarter to start making his dream game. He sees the sales the cheesecake got, and, AFTER he is fully funded funded, starts throwing in cheesecake as a way to get additional funding.
Then retards like you fucked it up AGAIN.
