comment Which is the game maker (for ex - Construct 2, Unity) that uses python as language?
I could be wrong, but I don't think one exists...

comment TiledMap Safe Area for different screen resolutions
There aren't many options. You either maintain aspect ratio and have black bars, or you maintain aspect ratio and clip, or you stretch and limit resolutions to those fitting your chosen aspect ratio. Unfortunately with 2D things are a bit more limited.

comment TiledMap Safe Area for different screen resolutions
Then use the FillViewport and deal with the fact that parts of your world will be cut off. Or use a StretchViewport and only allow the player to choose specific resolutions that match your aspect ratio...

comment TiledMap Safe Area for different screen resolutions
Use a FitViewport to keep aspect ratio without cutting off parts of the world.

comment Where can I find fonts for my game?
https://fontlibrary.org has a lot of open source fonts. You might be able to use some of those, depending on licensing and the opinions of lawyers. :P

comment How can you effectively filter your community feedback?
Proper time management is a skill and is a pretty big topic. It isn't really unique to game developers and many books have been written on the topic.

comment What are the pro/cons of Unity3D as a choice to make games?
No such thing as "necro" on SE. Case in point, my comment. :P

comment How can I randomly spawn circles on a screen but make sure they don't overlap?
@MAnd Agreed on all points. I've used this method to spawn entities at a pretty high scale, and it works well if care is taken. :)

comment Problem with collision detection also affecting collision resolution
I would recommend posting your code on github or bitbucket (or a similar service). With either of those, we can browse your source without having to download anything (and risk our machines). Better yet, include the relevant bits of code in your question so there is no need for an external service. :)

comment How can I randomly spawn circles on a screen but make sure they don't overlap?
Be careful in your implementation of this algorithm. If implemented poorly, it won't scale well (I learned the hard way!). Also be especially careful about that last step. You'll need to add a condition under which it gives up trying to spawn a new entity. You don't want to this cycle going on forever because there are no good places to spawn! :)

comment Java and Steam JVM deployment
Unlike other runtime environments, Java does not deal with multiple installations very well. If a user has Java 7 installed and needs that version available for one of their applications, and you run the Java 8 installer... then you just broke that application. Distribution of the targeted JRE is a much better option at this point.

comment How to manage state in a component-based game engine?
Components hold data (state is data). Systems process components (which contain data/state). You are already implementing the pattern that handles this "problem".

comment Security-minded design patterns / paradigm for client/server application
Is your question about web service security or how to design your API? MVC and REST are not mutually exclusive; the patterns can be used together, but they have nothing to do with security. I'm confused as to what your actual question is.

comment Adapting tilemap algorithm to support isometric tilemap
Can you clarify your question a bit? I'm not sure if you're looking for help with an isometric tile-rendering algorithm or if you're just looking for help extending the TilemapParser object.

comment Does the gender of a game's protagonist affect sales?
+1 for the interesting question pertaining to the business and marketing side of game development. It would be interesting to see if anyone can come up with any published statistics.

comment What is the best way to generate income from mobile games?
@Byte56, You assume everyone has the foresight and will to both understand and implement a "best way". For all we know, there is a "best way", but the curiosity and arrogance of man will never acknowledge such a thing.

comment How to avoid circular dependencies between Player and World?
+1 - I've found myself building my game systems something like this, and find it to be quite flexible.

comment How to avoid circular dependencies between Player and World?
+1 for questioning the need to remove the circular dependency at all. At some point, dependencies happen. Most of my core classes (often called Game or GameEngine) is nothing but a collection of every other class needed by the game loop. Often times, many of those classes have dependencies that go right back to the core class. It's not always a problem, and sometimes is necessary and even helpful.
