Is there a way to reliably disable mipmapping in the file itself, so that blenderplayer will respect the setting and not interpolate textures?

And no, I'm not making a Minecraft clone.

Mipmaps is a system setting, it would be set by the users startup blend file. Not sure that anyone would recommend overriding a users choice.

To change it you would use python to set bpy.context.user_preferences.system.use_mipmaps

This is related to mipmap settings, you can change in user preferences > systems > mipmap

But this only work inside blender.

In game (standalone) you need a script.

from bge import render
