It was originally created to support the two games made with GrimE, as they were the residual adventure games by LucasArts that weren't supported by ScummVM. It was also a word pun, as grime is a residue. It has since been expanded to support engines from several other games.
As of the current stable build (0.2.0), two games are officially supported, Grim Fandango and Myst III. In the unstable development builds, Escape from Monkey Island and The Longest Journey are also completable.
