As the West Pier ventures out into the ocean, it encounters various islands which it has the choice to visit. Visiting an island means you'll lose some of your birds on the journey there, but upon your arrival there is the chance of gaining more birds and other special resources to add on to the pier to support the birds—like fresh water, nests, earth, and seeds. Eventually, the pier loses its energy to keep moving, and stops in the water, becoming an island with the resources its acquired along the way.
We weren't able to implement the gameplay we'd intended within the time constraint of the game jam, so currently the West Pier just leaves Brighton beach and you're able to control its speed/number of birds.
