Duration of an episode


#1

Hi everyone!

How long should an episode have? I am writing my first story and was wondering how many lines should my episodes have.

And how about choices? What is the average/general opinion?

Thanks

I think your episode should be about 10 minutes of playing. It really depends on choices and how much directing you have, if you have a lot of long choices the episodes will appear shorter, but most likely try starting with 1000+ And if you have a lot of advanced directing and branching you’ll probably need more than that.

Good luck with your first story!

Thank you so much! I will take that in mind!

I’d say 10-15 minutes. If it’s shorter than that I instantly stop reading, if its more than 20 minutes I get bored and irritated that it’s taking too long to end lol
