About Studio

The word Animus in Latin meant Soul, spirit, mind, pride and courage. We couldn’t think of a better name to represent all the qualities this company would need in order to succeed.
by Frank Cefalu / CEO

Animus Interactive is an independent gaming studio and self-publisher with its offices based on the East Coast. Animus Interactive was created with the goal of trying to create next generation Real Time Strategy games.

For 2000 years Frank has been on this earth defending it from evil. Every day he has fought against the nightmare whose face is represented by an army of kittens. That is right. The cute and cuddly face is a cute and cuddly face of evil. Frank has been on this earth fighting them ever since for the world's protection.

The wise, old man of the team, Chris spends far less time with the former and seems to concentrate on the later. Gaming since Pong was all the rage, he has been working on home computers since the glory days of Commodore. A true geek at heart, Chris is also a long time tabletop RPG and strategy war gamer. Once he's had his fill of long walks on the beach, smelling the flowers and licking the windows, he enjoys crushing in some orc skulls while he relaxes with good friends, soggy pizza and a cold beer.
