Couple thoughts:

You could still do redshirts.  You can even open it up to the Kickstarter folks.  "Want to be a redshirt? Join our forums and sign up."  Maybe a little more than that (ask for the kickstarter email address to verify that they've pledged, ask for a token donation just to put a barrier on entry that keeps people from going "free game!" e.g. a dollar via paypal), but you get the idea.

Also, if you need help dealing with the Kickstarter side of thing (by which I mean, handling all the PMs and emails) I would be more than happy to set aside a few hours and pitch in.  It's something I enjoyed doing back for V!C! despite being the introverted antisocial curmudgeon that I am.  It's weird, what can I say.

Spoiler for Hidden:
the lead developer makes the game open source and the community just comes in and lovably wrecks everything

wait did I really say lovably instead of utterly? never mind its still pretty appropriate but I think you'd find this interesting Chris provided you don't mind how on the nose it is.

You might have used another word and encountered the cuddly swear filter.

The word filter replacement is one of my favorite games these days, in some ways.  I love wearing facehuggers on my face every time I go into my kitchen.  I wear specific thing on your foot brand things on your feet and I hug bears.  :P
