Counterfeit Monkey by Emily Short. https://github.com/i7/counterfeit-monkey/releases
If you don't want to install a parser on your computer, you can play it online by putting the link to the .gblorb file into https://iplayif.com/ I.e. https://iplayif.com/?story=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fi7%2Fc...
Modern games are generally going to be more approachable than old ones. Tastes have changed considerably. In the days when you couldn't pull up a walkthrough in a few seconds, taking days to think of the next step was part of the fun, and just getting permanently stuck at some point was fairly common. Also, letting the player keep going even after they have done something to make the game unwinnable is now considered very uncool. Navigation is much less tedious these days as well, fast travel for example, although the exact mechanics depend on the game.
And that's not mentioning the amount of CPU and RAM available, not only for the game's runtime, but also for tools like I7 (which was used to write Counterfeit Monkey).
For an quicker introduction to modern "interactive fiction", as it's called these days, check out competition entries. https://intfiction.org/c/competitions/7 These are generally written in a shorter amount of time and the results are quicker to play through.11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 21 Jan 2023
This is a fun one I played recently about shopping in a grocery store, called Aisle. You only have a single command you can give for the whole game, but there's a looot of them you can provide, and it gives you a different ending for each. Part of the fun is trying to figure out what you can say to find another ending. You can play it directly at the link below.

But then I realized that I should probably will need to use jsDOM. This is the library that can be used in nodejs to mock the DOM. This is what jest testing framework is using and this is what I was using to test jQuery Terminal library in Jasmine before jest was created.

But parsing options are useful if you need more complex commands. You can use long options in GNU style like in the previous example but also short options like -u will be accessible in options.u variable. You can read more about parsing commands and options on this wiki page. Adding options make commands work more like real command-line applications, so it becomes less and less like a fake terminal.4 projects | dev.to | 3 Jul 2022

If you don't mind using jQuery Based Terminal library. You can do almost everything (except I don't know how to create floating domain animation) with https://terminal.jcubic.pl/. You can think about jQuery Termial as a framework. You don't need ReactJS or Angular for this.
The library supports typing animation and changing colors. You can easily create the same interactive console.
If you're interested I can create a demo for this.
