SerpentHead is inspired by the classic first-person adventure game Shadowgate (as the developers themselves note) and it features a similar plot (explore the castle) and also a similar UI (click a verb, then click a thing). The story for the game is LENGTHY and included in a separate file (see README.DOC) for those who want to read the whole backstory. Basically you click around, trying things on things, until you make progress. There doesn't seem to be as much that will instantly kill you (like Shadowgate) but on the other hand, the castle itself doesn't seem nearly as interesting as the classic game.
