Answer:

The older Monkey Island games were based on a scripting language called SCUMM, hence a bar in the game was named after this language.

From Escape from Monkey Island onwards, the GrimE engine was used, which used the Lua scripting language. To “notify” this change, the game devs renamed the Scumm bar to the Lua bar.

    The GrimE engine


  3. The Scumm Bar was named after the game-engine SCUMM, which was used for previous Monkey Island Games.

    The GrimE engine which is based on LUA, is used for Escape From Monkey Island. hence LUAbar

    Lucas art’s shift from SCUMM to (GrimE) and Lua

    p.s. Its the Monkeying around which led to Meelee Islands popular SCUMM bar with the ‘tourist friendly’ Lua bar.. geez!

    No clue.
    wiki lift.

    “SCUMM bar” in The Secret of Monkey Island are both named after the scripting language.
    In Escape from Monkey Island, victim of a hostile takeover, the “SCUMM bar” becomes the “Lua bar”, a nod to the programming language which replaced the engine used for the previous games.

    The engine powering Escape from Monkey Island is the GrimE engine which is based upon LUA, an open source scripting language. The Scumm Bar was named after the game-engine SCUMM, which was used to create all the previous Monkey Island games.

    shifting from the scumm engine to lua programming language


  14. Ps

    donno if this one got through..

    the switch is the switch in the monkey island series from the SCUMM bar to the Lua Bar @ meelee island.

    Its meant to indicate Lucas arts monkeying around with the series and switching from SCUMM to GrimE (Lua based).


  15. Scumm Bar being renamed Lua Bar, acknowledging the change in the game engines running the Monkey Island games.

    Okay, no patience to type the long-ass answer I typed earlier, but – in the game storyline the name change is because of ownership change. In the real world it’s a shout-out to the change in game engine.


  19. Escape from Monkey Island, In this game, as a homage to Lua, they renamed a bar inside the game from SCUMM (the language they used previously) to Lua Bar.

    Ah, brings back fond memories, this game…

    Escape from Monkey Island: “Compared to the rest of the series, the SCUMM scripting language was replaced by the Lua programming language.”
