Welcome to Jam For The Breakfast Of Tomorrow, an RPG Maker based contest!

The goal is to make a game using any RPG Maker engine. The catch is that every entry must use the same premise:

The MC needs to get their breakfast. However, the world seems to be against this idea. 

Minor inconveniences pile up one after the other until it escalates to an eventual war.

But the MC has an undying will. They will not stop due to their mentor's advice: 

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day"

The winners of this contest, depending on their placing, will receive copies of  RPG Maker VX, RPG Maker XP, RPG Maker 2003, and RPG Maker 2000 on Steam!

While there are prizes to be claimed, know that every effort for all submissions will always output joy, no matter the outcome!
