Animosity is a proposed project to create a free content replacement for Strife in a manner similar to Freedoom, Blasphemer and Zauberer for Doom, Heretic and Hexen. A partially incomplete blanked version of STRIFE1.WAD was produced by Mars Jurich (Death Egg) as a PWAD file (featuring 0.6.2's E1M1 track from Freedoom: Phase 1, by Ralph Vickers (Ralphis)) in April 2012, but no further work was released.

Jeff Shark (Marnetmar) had offered to write up a design document. Adam Woodmansey (Khorus) also offered the then developing level set Absolute Order to the project. A steampunk look was suggested in the original thread, with possible clockwork automatons. Other suggested titles were Struggle and Cataclysm. Ayub Ahmed (Voros) had offered to take over the project in 2016.

In January 2024 a collection of potential artwork for such a project was gathered by Graham Wilson (Technopeasant) on OpenGameArt.org, all of which under CC0 or the Modified BSD License, including scrapped weapons artwork from Freedoom, the ethereal crossbow from Blasphemer (pitching this to replace it in that game), and one weapon sprite from Zauberer for The Sigil of the One God. Suggested enemy graphics are either existing sprite sheets, or 3D models that could be posed and converted to sprites. He also drafted a project logo, featuring a combination of handwritten styled text and digital printing to illustrate the combination of the medieval and the futuristic, alongside a brief plot synopsis inspired by ancient astronauts and cargo cults. Nothing has been merged into the WAD as yet.
