It's very difficult to guess, because all I can see is light tan and dark green (great choices for colours, by the way), and what looks like light tan trees on an even lighter tan background.

I really like it, though. :)

I do :). It's the background that gives it away. Brilliant. Especially nice when combined with the green. Very nice vibe.

Are they trees? Or is it a map?
While this is an interesting approach, it serves no practical purpose.

I am surprised that no one has noticed what the style is based on.
I see trees.

EDIT: Used Firefox to look at the image - nice touch.

It's the trees on the old Sierra box covers.

Look here for an example:

Ooh, I see it now. Very clever!

Ooh! Now I get it. :D

What is Sorcerian, though? ;)

Game Arts game. Same studio that made Thexder. Zeliard too? Can't remember.

Game Arts made Thexder, Silpheed, and Zeliard, but Sorcerian was by Falcom.

Ohh...but it's the sequel to Zeliard right?

I don't think there's any connection between Zeliard and Sorcerian aside from Sierra publishing the translation/port of both. Sorcerian is the fifth entry in the Dragon Slayer series (though that series doesn't share a continuity or even a genre).

Hey! I remember Zeliard, and Thexder too! :)

(For some reason, I always confused Zeliard with Zelda...) ;)
