I think between using a card based approach as rooms or scenarios and
simple logic that this type of application is a perfect match for
Revolution. I would look into using switch statements for multiple
choices and also random() to add a little uncertainty to the game
It helps to draw out the flow of the story/game on paper to realize
where the turning points need to be.
Also, along the lines of Myst you can have turning points that take
you to a 'special' area that can include puzzles and animations etc.
Se AnimationEngine for ideas on that.
I always wanted to do a 'web' based treasure hunt type game that
combined a desktop app for its base and web sites out there with key
pieces of info to complete the story.
Anyway, as to your question, I don't think there are any
unsurmountable roadblocks for a program like this. The only difficult
part would be animation.
And don't forget you can use the free iTunes Library Suite to include
a background sound track for your story/game made up of the End Users
own music library.
