No. Of course most of my favorite games don't have tiles. Or graphics...
I think most of the Byond community isn't turned off by tile-based movement, but to counter, I think the community is turned on by Pixel movement.
I wouldn't base decisions on what the BYOND community is used to. They're also used to games running at 10 frames per second. In any other setting, games that slow would be considered unplayable.
