I decided some time ago to create a text-based Skyrim. That sounds overly ambitious at first, but as I developed the story and the game’s mechanics, I discovered its basic elements: a sword & sorcery game in a living, simulated world that is presented as a Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) book. The idea has already brought a short game into the world, Insignificant Little Vermin, which I submitted to this year’s IFCOMP.article blog game programming

Not what I originally thought at all, but a pleasant surprise. Instead of some image-to-human-language translation, he's talking about a game that's as deep and interesting as Skyrim, but describable instead of renderable (necessarily a superset). The level-of-detail discussion is not bad.worldbuilding procedural writing game
