Need recommendations for games similar to LucasArts titles

Adventure Game Recommendations: I really miss playing games I could lose myself into for hours on end, and I would like to find some new games similar to those I enjoyed years ago. But I stopped playing a long while back so I have no idea what's been on the market since and how to look for such games now. I have always loved the LucasFilm/LucasArts titles but they seem to have stopped producing pretty point-click adventures after Grim Fandango
. Other favorites were Windham Classics adventures like Below the Root
or Alice in Wonderland
, Cinemaware action-adventures like It Came from the Desert
, The King of Chicago
, and detective games like Killed Until Dead
Are there any comparable modern counterparts? I am not into RPGs or text MUDs or shooters. Please tell me there are still games out there involving great stories, detailed scenes, and good puzzle-play!

The only modern non-LucasArts adventure I know of is The Longest Journey
. Are there more of this sort?
If there are no such new-ish games, are there ancient ones similar to the games mentioned above that I should try to hunt down?
Thanks, MeFi gamers!

Maniac Mansion remake and Zak McKracken sequel.)
