Have you played any roguelikes? This one seems fairly ambitious, though nowadays, Dwarf Fortress is the gold standard. DF was supposed to start out as a single player adventure game in the style of classic roguelikes such as the original Rogue, but the designers wanted a really rich world simulation, and eventually they ended up with a base building game.

But the general idea of building a simulation and then putting a player in it seems really cool to me. And I'm a fan ASCII. I like the idea of a game that I can play at the terminal.
