I love what you're going for here. I like the pixel art, the idea - the sounds got bit to much echo for my taste but it's an interesting effect non the less.
I'd like to see the character automatically turn towards the rock I hold left mouse button on instead of manually turning him with WASD.
I feel like the rock tileset would need a bit more hight, it looks so flat compared to the oven and the PC. Not looking bad but just.. flat - probably just an artistic preference on my end.
The UI obviously still is pretty clunky to use.
I think the amount of ppl reacting to what you did here is mainly because of the juicy visuals & animations presenting your game on the itch.io site and your obvious passion for it. Also your Trello board looks awesome. Keep that up :)
Best of luck with your game.
