Possible Idea For a Sem Web Based Game?

Hi All

I was thinking about creating a simple game based on semantic web
technologies and linked data.

Some on this list may be too young to remember this, but there used to
be game books where you would choose your own adventure.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choose_Your_Own_Adventure

The idea is that every page would have a description, optionally a
drawing, and a number or 'links' to new pages.  Each 'link' would take
you to another page where you would continue the adventure, or reach
an ending.

I was wondering how hard it would be to model this using linked data principles.

1.  Would each 'location' be a document or a resource?  Web of
Documents vs Web of Resources?

2.  Could we use foaf:image and dcterms:desc for the game pages?

3.  How would you model the link on each page?

It might be interesting to knock something together, maybe there's
some data sources for this.  Or even better still allow people to
change images and descriptions to create a living story, using web
standards (webdav & sparql update perhaps).

I'm not sure how the rendering would work, but perhaps it's easy
enough in RDFa once we have a model.

Do you think this could work?

Thanks in advance
Melvin
