If you already know a BASIC language, and you don't want to spend time learning a more sophisticated language, then skip C++ and do your game in QBasic, or VB. Bad coding habits aside, a BASIC language will allow you to crank out a text game in no time flat, even with little knowledge of the syntax. C++, on the other hand, might take a little more time to produce the same game if you've never used it, but if you're looking to become a better programmer, then that is the road to take, imo.

Whatever you decide, just stick with it and post some screenshots when you're done!

Heck, if you know what you "need to do" to get this type of program done, you should consider using C# to get it done. True it's a new language and you might not know anything about it, but you can easily learn as you go (if you are that type of person of course, practice makes perfect) and you can end up with a great product with not so much effort. You can easily make a GUI based program that creates text games that way with Windows.Forms (GUI component of C#). You can get Visual C# here. Just one idea.
