** ColorMotif: Swan footprints appear in orange, the color of warmth and vitality. Given the empty and sterile nature of the world, this is probably a deliberate contrast. * DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist

In it, you play as a young boy who has chased a swan into a strange, surreal world where there are huge swaths of unfinished white space. Using globs of black paint to splatter and reveal your surroundings, you must make your way ever forward hunting the titular swan. The gameplay is puzzle and exploration based, with throwing different forms of paint or water making up the core gameplay mechanic. Power-Ups can be bought to give you a hose effect, a straight-line effect, and the ability to pause time for the balls in the air, allowing you to throw multiple balls at the same time.

* GuideDangIt: The Minimalist trophy, which requires you to get through the first part of the first level (which is almost entirely white, by the way), using only 3 balls of black paint or less. Be prepared to either look up a step-by-step guide, or get ready to figure out where you are based solely on sound until you come across some of the swan's footprints.

He's shown himself to be an impressive artist and architect, having built the two castle towns you explore. On the other hand, the main reason the game's first area (his garden) is completely white is because he believes there are no colors good enough for him to use in his projects; his subjects had to live with it for a while until their complaints became too loud to ignore. [[spoiler:Another example of where his pride can take him: that 100-foot unfinished statue of him you eventually come across? That's ''the scale model.'']]

* PowerUp: Balloons hide toys to improve your paint splatter. You can make the splatter area larger or increase the rate you can throw paint globs.

While true, it belongs in YMMV. And the High Octane variety of Nightmare Fuel has been retired.
* [[spoiler:HighOctaneNightmareFuel: The third level, "Nighttime". Environment which is extremely dark? Check. Creepy sound design? Check. Giant spiders? Checkarooni. The first area in the game where you can actually be noticeably hurt by anything? CHECK.]]
