I enjoyed what time I had with teh game but here's some feedback.
Why am I not starting by my home? Then when I do go by my home I can't go inside? Why even have a home?
U see water, the scarecrow needs water. It feels really odd the first thing you do isn't to grab a pale of water to water him. Maybe this could be the first thing you do? He then gets enough energy to tell you that the old later and man on the road were friends and that's what you need to do. As it stands just wandering around talking to people feels a little dull when there are all these things in the world that seem to need your atention.
Another thing... when near the endge of the world it would be nice if you saw the trail going upwards to the other directoin a bit like when going down stairs. Right now it's disorienting to "use" near the edge of the screen and then be expected to go the other direction.
I encountered a pretty major bug when in the first major puzzle with the key, i was able to go across the chasm at the door and I pushed the box to the right and then it was no longer able to fall and I got stuck. At least I think this was a bug.
I really like the style and overall setup, you can feel a lot of care went into the game.
