'''Grim Fandango''' was the first LucasArts adventure game to not use the [[SCUMM]] scripting language.  Instead, it used an engine called GrimE (Grim Engine), which was based upon the [http://www.lua.org/ Lua] open-source scripting language.  The game follows Manny Calavera, a grim reaper for the Department of Death in the Land of the Dead.  He learns that the system he works for is corrupt, after a woman who led a great life, Mercedes (Meche) Colomar, doesn't get to go straight to the seventh level of the afterlife, the land of eternal rest.  Manny must take a four-year journey to find out who's behind the corruption, find Meche, and earn himself a place in the land of eternal rest.
