comment Loading and unloading “chunks” of tiles in a 2d tile engine with 2d camera
why not use a dictionary with the x,y (and z if you're that way inclined) coords as your key? like: {'0:0': chunk0, '1024:0':chunk1}

comment A game engine like unity but for 2d
I suppose it depends on your background, if you're already a 3D person, 2D is pretty much the same deal - check this out: youtube.com/watch?v=eUVSjoT2ORA

comment Player choices affecting a massive online world
Something on top of a Dwarf Fortress style game-world would be good. Make the world persistent, if someone kills a shop-keep, no one can shop there until someone takes their place. Don't split the player-base at all. Make all choices effect everyone, the balance would be hard to get right, and you'd need to have measures to prevent griefing.

comment Doing an SNES Mode 7 (affine transform) effect in pygame
there seems to be equations here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode_7 Although, these days we have 3D acceleration, things like Mode 7, or the whacky way doom worked are more of a curiosity than a solution.
