If I buy Scribblenauts Unlimited (PC) at and ship it to Europe, will I be able to attach it to my German Steam account or at least play it at all?

I think the answer is "yes." See also: – badp Dec 1 '12 at 16:10

@badp This is only true for gifting, not if you enter a key. If you enter a key a lot more restrictions apply, while through gifting those do not apply and you can most likely play all games uncut and without restrictions. There are some cases though where gifts from different regions cannot be activated or even installed in Germany such as Dead Rising 2 and in general gifts from Russia. – user28015 Jan 10 '13 at 9:47

as far as I am aware, it should be able to attach to your steam account, but will be locked until it is available to be bought in Europe.

the only way I know this is a member of the Yogscast has and was playing the game in Europe before the new year and it is now locked, so they must have bought it in the US as it is only available there atm.

No, it was available for purchase in Europe for a few hours during the sale, then they locked it. Nobody knows why. Downvoted because the information is incorrect and incomplete. – user28015 Jan 10 '13 at 9:46
ah, I was under the assumption it must have been for a known reason, weird – d4rkph30n1x Jan 10 '13 at 9:50
