Do you remember that conversation based video game?

I can't remember the name of this video game. It was an academic project, as I recall. The entire thing is conversation based. What the player types is parsed by a natural language processing engine so the game seems to understand what you say. It takes place in a single room and revolves around a couple with a not-so-great marriage.

I guess somebody already found the one you meant, but here's the one I thought of when I read your description: galatea (play - java)

You're not thinking of it, but another natural language based game was Douglas Adams' Starship Titanic: http://www.starshiptitanic.com/
