@ Vorro: Well I don't hide the Truth. Colored Maps just sells better. This kind of style I develloping are strongly influenced by Torstan, EpicRed, Djekspek, -Max-, Viking and some others. Its not a sellout, at least for me. I was an am a Gamer first, loved early Square Soft Games like MysticQuest/Final Fantasy and Secret of Mana. Also, the old Zelda Games influenced me in a strong way. This all, in most iterations do have colorfull maps. There are two historical traditions I value:

Yes I will work in the coasts, its not finished yet.
