Yes, I've thought this would make a really nice showcase too.

Liam Quinn built a nice little demo [1] of something like this. I was
also looking at the Inform interactive fiction engine [1] (again!)
recently. The basic engine is basically a set of core rules about a
game world operates. The core rules can be extended and ability for
user to interact with the world can be inferred from those rules. E.g.
whether you can climb onto or inside something. Struck me that it'd be
possible to (re-)build a lot of that using RDF, OWL, RIF.

Cheers,

L.
