I’m currently creating a fantasy story and I thought creating this discussion would help me as well as others who stumble across it!
Personally, I like episodes to be around 10-15 minutes. 5 minutes is quite short, and to be completely honest does feel like a waste of passes. I wanted people’s detailed opinions (which is why this isn’t a poll!)
My first episode is around 10 minutes (it depends on how long a person will spend customising the MC, which I’d say takes people around 2-3 minutes depending on how picky they are). I’m not sure how long first episodes should be, but playing Episode’s own stories and community ones, they tend to be around 5-8 minutes, but mostly less. Do any of you think this is okay, acceptable etc. ? Personally (again, LOL) it feels quite short but I imagine is easy to getaway with as the first episode doesn’t use a pass. But it’s also a very important episode, because it introduces you to the characters, world and hooks the reader in to actually spend their passes.
Anywho, let me know your opinions as it would be greatly appreciated!
TLDR: My episodes are 10-15 minutes, I don’t agree with 5 minute long episodes + I want your guys’ opinions!
