Default Choose your own adventure!

General:
I'm teaching myself C# as of now, but when I was learning Java in high
school my class made a text-based adventure game (See Hunt the Wumpus). You basically chooses each turn what you want to do.

Example:
"You are in a cell. A floorboard is loose, and a shiny object is beneath it.
What would you like to do?"
A. Inventory
-Lamp
-Sword
B. Move to:
C. Take:

Something along this line, but with graphics instead of text. If you guys
have ever played flash games like the "Escape the Room" kind of deal,
this'd be something like that.

Development:
In my opinion it would be easy to make, since there are plenty of
examples, but hopefully that doesn't sound too boring...

thats not a "choose your own adventure", thats a text game! if you want a much better exapmle of this (and have windows xp or lower) go to run, and type in "telnet zorkonline.org" (without the apostrophes), press "Y", the username/password is "Zorkonline". play to you hearts content!(its quite addicting). i would love to have a game like this on my zune, and while you can get zork on liberate, you can only play so long before it timesout (although tey are fixing that) and you also can't read the words, which makes it quite pointless

yeah, i guess choose your own adventure isn't the best description.
