“The Cheetah: An elegant, graceful, fragile cat with all the speed to be a successful killer. The cat chases down its prey in a brutal game of life and death and has a relatively high success rate when hunting. With its top hunter potential and near perfect camouflage it would seem that the cheetah has the upper hand in the harsh environment it lives in, but it is quite the opposite. The cheetah is in an everyday constant struggle for survival, not only for the individual, but for the entire species as a whole.
Experience the cheetah's struggle for existence first hand by breeding and raising your cubs in an environment that is constantly full of dangers, sickness, and hunger. Take care of the cheetahs in your reserve by mixing the right food for them to stay healthy, experiment with the new genetic potential the game offers, and much more!”

What is Acinonyx?
Acinonyx is the pet simulation game where you raise, breed, and play with cheetahs! Here you can build your own coalition on your Reserve, breed your cheetahs to produce beautiful and skilled offspring with our genetics system, Explore with your cheetahs to hunt, mate, find items, and raise your cubs, create your own stunning custom cheetahs, shop for useful and attractive items to use with your cheetahs, play our on-site games to win coins you can use to purchase all kinds of things, and much more! Come play with us!

Why Patreon?
Acinonyx Sim has been in production and playable since 2011, but with staff changes, code rewrites, and limited time, we just haven't been able to make it out of Alpha so far. Our team has now been solidified, our coders are currently hard at work on the upcoming Beta (at last!), and our artists are drawing and painting their spotty little tails off to produce the high volume of quality art the site requires. But we're all volunteers, and as such, we can only devote so much time to the game. Acinonyx has not, as of yet, been a financial positive. We want to change that! We want to get that Beta out as soon possible and go forward into our full live game! We want to be able to pay our staff so they can devote more time to the game! And we need your help to do it!

Rewards
we have some fabulous rewards for you! Our rewards work best if you have an account on Acinonyx; some of them will allow you to receive an Alpha account as part of our thank-you to you for supporting us. Accounts given through Patreon will continue into the Beta and live game; you do not need to purchase a second account when Beta starts! Some rewards, namely the suggest a plush, background, and Explore animal options, will result in our artists creating new art for the site based on your idea!

You may notice that, for example, the Coalition tier is more expensive than it would be to simply purchase the forever upgraded account reward that comes with it. This is because the account is just one of many rewards you receive at that level! If you just want the account and not the other rewards, you are of course welcome to go to our Alpha Sales page and purchase one directly.

Patron-only décor items will become available as soon as they're coded, which is getting worked on as we speak!

In the future we will be looking into further bonuses, such as a Patron badge for your account, a Patrons-only area in the forums, and similar ideas, but as those would require extra coding, we're putting them off for now – we want our coders to stay focused on improving the game itself! If you have any idea for future rewards, you are encouraged to contact one of our Admins and let us know!
