The Flying Beavers is an independent game company based in Montreal. 

We make games with a message, something that will linger after the game experience. Social issues and ecology are among our favorite subjects.

We make games that stand-out by their unique gameplay, story or point of view.

We make games accessible for everyone to enjoy and love to layer our narration at different levels of interpretation.

We make games fast, cheap and with high quality standards (Pick two).

Team

Jalil Laalami Ouali
Founder & Technical Designer

Team lead and game designer, Jalil has always been intrigued by the powerful emotions games and interactive experiences trigger in us.

Trained as a programmer and a game designer, Jalil worked as a creative technologist and assistant-producer in France, Spain, Morocco and Canada.

After a successful time working on AAA titles with large teams, Jalil decided to go back to smaller scopes as a way to create original and emotionally charged experiences, interactivity with a message…

His dive into the Indie world proved to be the right choice so far: with the mental agility to easily jump from Visual Studio to Jira and a contagious talent for doing more with less, he never had so much fun at work!

Empathy is central to his open and agile problem-solving style but it has a broader meaning: convinced humanist and ecologist, he has faith in gaming as a tool to improve and adapt our society to the challenges to come (yes, saving the world, really!)
