We've made no decision on what tool best complements our Kickstarter presence; we continue to look at our options and we'll very likely experiment with a few different ideas before finding a Kickstarter companion that works best for us.
I've thought about this too, for many reasons. Some considerable delays in my own projects due to the built-in "oh, and we'll keep your money for 2.5 weeks" in Kickstarter, for example.

If you have a built-in audience, running your own crowdfunding platform may well be an option. Might require coding-savvy to get it done. I'm still looking.
