I like the game. It's a little tough to control, but it's got nice challenge and makes you think.
However... I think I'm actually soft-locked. My stick and string first became a bow, which I eventually used to kill everything. I still need to make the fishing pole, which I know is supposed to be done through trading, but no one wants the things I have.
Inventory: Cabbage, shovel, bow, lasso, poop hand, 4 tokens, lute, and the dead Butternuts.
Endings: Everything except Butterfly and Dragon.
There is no wizard, and I can't work my way up to a sickle, so I can't interact with any of the plants that would allow me to progress. I've spoken to every NPC multiple times, I have a lute that an NPC hasn't spawned for, and I wasted a lot of my time walking around to be sure I'm actually stuck.
I watched a gameplay video and they're getting results I'm not, but they chose to get the fishing pole first so that's why I think I'm stuck. That's also why I know I'm missing key characters they have access to after doing most of the same steps with a different order.
