Amount of lines per episode?


How many lines do you recommend per episode? This is excluding the around 1500 lines for character customisation.
Do you have a preferred amount of episodes per story?

I honestly don’t mind, but I would prefer a longer episode (8-10mins)

The thing about lines is… If you have a lot of branching/choices or very advanced directing, the lines you write don’t really matter. I have episodes with 1500 lines that are the same length in minutes as episodes with 8000.

I used to say 1200-2000 lines would make for a decent episode length but really, it just depends on the story.

In terms of amount of episodes, I personally prefer stories to have 20 or less, since ones with too many tend to drag out a bit too much

I would say take time on how long your story is instead. around ten minuts are good
