Flotsam Update 3.2 Patch Notes: Seagulls Overhauled, Saved Games Fixed

Developer Pajama Llama Games recently released a new update for Flotsam which implements fixes for a number of bugs and introduces a few gameplay changes. Along with the latest update, the developers at Pajama Llama Games have updated some UI settings.

Pajama Llama Games have reworked the seagulls in numerous ways including a new animation for them. They have also increased the performances of loaded saves, so now you can save as much as you want without a decrease in performance.

Flotsam Update 3.2 Patch Notes 

You can find the patch notes below:

Starting this update seagulls aren't an alternative drifter anymore. Instead they now are little helpers that will collect resources for you, if you decide to take care of them.
Freeing them from the landmarks on which they are in distress will have them join your community. Building a Birdhouse and filling it with raw fish will motivate them to automatically collect flotsam for you, freeing up your drifters for other tasks.
