Update: Creator of the "Nyan Cat" meme Christopher Orlando Torres explained to us that the lawsuit had been misreported in the media and that "Nyan Cat" was copyrighted in 2011 while Scribblenauts Unlimited wasn't released until 2012. He didn't know about the series' use of the meme until it appeared in the debut trailer for the its latest installment:

Scribblenauts Unlimited review

Absolute power bores absolutely.

There's a famous episode of The Twilight Zone called “It's a Good Life”, wherein a boy with omnipotent powers terrorises all those around him for his own amusement. Anyone or anything he doesn't like gets whisked away into an inescapable cornfield, or worse, turned into a jack-in-the-box. Scribblenauts Unlimited is a lot like that. The world may be your plaything, but getting your way all the time isn't all it's cracked up to be.

As with the last two Scribblenauts games, you play as Maxwell, a kid with a magic notebook that allows him to summon anything by simply scrawling it down. And much like the boy in that Twilight Zone episode, Maxwell is a colossal dick. In the opening cinematic he gives a hobo a poison apple just to please his own sadistic Prince Joffrey-like tendencies. Unfortunately for our perverse protagonist, this is no ordinary tramp but a mystic Drag Me to Hell-esque gypsy that puts a curse on Maxwell's sister which will turn her into stone unless he can gather enough "starites" by doing good deeds.

It's a good thing the rules of this universe are so ass-backwards that "good deeds" include feeding a hungry kid a poison candy bar (have I learned nothing?), giving a stork a dead baby to deliver and creating a cat for a lonely boy to play with only to kill his new feline friend a second later.
