I found the name I'm going to use for now.
In other news, I found some nice tiles on opengameart that not only look nice, but more importantly, are easy to use :)
I use Tiled to create a tilemap, and load the data with bitcrafts PyTMX library to load the data.
I had some problems today with the viewport that cost me quite a bit of time, but I found the problem and I can "walk" across the map. The next step is finding (or creating?) some character. Just moving a white spot across the map isn't very much fun
