2D Point and Click Engine Recommendations

I'm looking for some good recommendations on modern 2D point-and-click adventure game engines. These should be complete engines, not just advice to use Lua or Pascal (it's making a comeback). I want to look at the whole engine, not just the scripting language. PC based is required. Mobile is a ok. HTML5 is not necessary. Screw JavaScript. Screw Lua too, but not as hard as JavaScript.

I'm not so much interested in using them, as I'd just like to dissect and deconstruct what the state of the art is today.

P.S. I don't know why I hate Lua so much. I haven't really used it other than hacking WoW UI mods, but there is something about the syntax that makes it feel like fingernails on a chalkboard.

P.P.S It's wonderful that "modern 2d point-and-click" isn't an oxymoron anymore.

P.P.P.S Big bonus points if you've actually used the engine. I do know how to use Google.

P.P.P.P.S I want engines that are made for adventure games, not general purpose game engines.

Here are the rules for commenting.
