Escape from Monkey Island was the fourth game in the Monkey Island series, and the second game to use the Lua-based Grim Engine. The game follows Guybrush Threepwood and Elaine Marley as they return to Mêlée Island from their honeymoon. There they discover that Elaine Marley's position of governor has been revoked, her mansion is scheduled to be demolished, and a politician named Charles L. Charles is running for the governorship. Guybrush learns that the islands are being purchased one by one, and pirates are being forced out in favor of tacky Caribbean-themed tourism. Guybrush must find out who is threatening his way of life, piracy, and also find a way to save Elaine's mansion.

Current status in ScummVM

The ResidualVM GrimE engine is being merged into ScummVM.
