The success of Steins;Gate (the game) is driven by having unique and good story for a visual novel. The most important will be the adaption of the story at least in my (critical) opinion.

Of course, willing to go against typical character designs of modern anime/gaming probably did help the success of the game. Of course one has to blind to say that being flashy and extravagantly cute are not deciding factors for series going super popular. I will be happy enough if Steins;Gate make a good adaption, and the folks behind make a reasonable amount of money.
