This is the first possibility that came to my mind - from an actual point-and-click adventure game, at that (of the suggestions, AFAIK only Darkseed 2 in the OP is one, but it doesn't really look much like a map).
I love the Monkey Island example! I'm thinking something from CMI might be better though, simply because of the improved graphics. Here, I made one of Plunder Island: ◊. I'll make one of Blood Island too, I just have get there.. no old saves. The dark background of Blood Island will be better with the font I expect.

please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.
Is there just one location on the map with arrows indicating which way you can go from there? If that's the case, I think I prefer one with multiple options already on the map...good for Image Links, though, if it doesn't get chosen. I anticipate we'll need a crowner on this.
