    It should be possible, somewhat easy for an intermediate-advanced programmer , though it's a lot of work to build and animate your sprites
    I've seen 3d engine available for VB, so i'm guessing yes.
    Easy for text based, the main difficulty will be the word interpreter/dictionary, unless you restrict the amount of command or you use a menu driven gameplay
