inform is an interactive fiction engine/compiler thing, which may not be exactly what you are looking for... but you can get the source code, and there is a bunch of resources at the site as well.

T.A.D.S. is cross platform, has lots of games for it and has a free authors kit if you just want to write your own game. I''m not sure if you want to make a game or re-invent a new IF system for some other reason, re-inventing the wheel shouldn''t be necessary if all you want to do is author a game. I''m not sure but TADS might be open source.

You might want to look into natural language processing for the parser. And if you''re thinking about representation of objects, locations, and characters, there are plenty of MUDs out there with downloadable source.
