Well, maybe you could explain more.
I guess you mean, that you want 12 options in four columns and three rows, like this:
Option1 Option2 Option3 Option4
Option5 Option6 Option7 Option8
Option9 Option10 Option11 Option12

For this you can change the screen choice in screens.rpy.
Instead of vbox, put an hbox with box_wrap True.
Change the xsize of the texbutton-options (by default is very long) AND all your options should be short strings.

For example:

Code: Select all

screen choice(items):
    style_prefix "choice"

    hbox:
        align (.5, .45)
        box_wrap True
        for i in items:
            textbutton i.caption action i.action xsize 300
