A downloadable game

In the 19th century, the Westfield Academy of Arcane Learning was THE school of magical learning for the wealthy and powerful. But accidents happen, and one day, an explosion in the Elemental Research Center triggered a chain reaction that destroyed most of the campus and left the area lousy with wild magic. It would take over 500 years for the area to be suitable for human habitation again, wizards threw a warding over the forest around the Academy, ensuring that non-magical humans could never accidentally find the school, and magical creatures in the remains of the Academy couldn't wander out.

But wild animals could come and go as they pleased.

The Academy still exists, constantly being buffeted by wild magic effects, home to ghosts and elementals and lingering constructs… and you! Animals of the forest who found their way into the grounds and have been changed by it. You’re still yourself: you’re an animal, with an animal’s instincts and abilities, but you’re also a wizard. 

It’s extremely challenging to growl out spells made for human throats and perform complex gestures that aren’t supposed to be done with paws, and so your magical skills are… limited and prone to failure. But you can do it. And you need to; your home isn't just in constant danger of collapsing in on itself, it's also highly sought after by those who live out in the world, where magic is largely forgotten, and spells and artifacts are hoarded by a handful of preposterously wealthy humans who would gladly raze the Academy to the ground in order to access the treasures that still lie within it. 

Academia Animalia is a game about magic-using animals fighting billionaires, currently being developed by Glaive Guisarme Games.
