Not sure if it's what you are looking for but you might want to check out Silversword. The Bard's Tale also includes the original Bard's Tale trilogy as well.

Its called Interactive Fiction games. Great games - maybe the original computer games?

Lost Treasures of Infocom - many of the classics like Zork

Frotz - allows you to play many, many interactive fiction games and there are instructions on how to make interactive fiction games compatible with Frotz.

Both are excellent.
