I agree, this could have potential, maybe. I suspect that the games industry is much farther ahead on this road than book publishers though. There are already games that have a strong narrative aspect. I've tried a few and liked some. Nobody pretended they were novels, but the quality of the narrative had an important part in whether or not I enjoyed them. This is not especially new either. How old is Myst? Must be rather more than 10 years I would think...
