While I'm aware of how unlikely such a thing is, and to trust trustworthy people, is there a method to guarantee safety and give away demos of an unfinished game?
You might want to have the person you intend to give access to the demo sign a non-disclosure agreement. You probably should contact an attorney to make sure the agreement is enforceable.
Are you giving out beta versions of the full game?
Since this forum is catered towards creating a game, I would be shocked if someone was here to steal people's projects. This forum is full of people who want to create their own VN, and speaking from a writer's perspective, I find my own WIPs more interesting than other peoples.
If you want to beat the odds, my suggestion would be to find a few people with a decent amount of posts (good track record) with a few projects under their belt (experience) and/or with a WIP thread (has their own baby to raise, won't steal someone else's).
There's also the NDA agreement... but it's hard to enforce over the internet and lawyers are expensive.

Post screenshots video clips and teasers to social media.
Make sure people know it's your game and you made it. That way when a kid uploads your "cool demo" to steam, you can prove it's yours. (actually happened to a guy, but I can't find the news article)
