* [[CensorSteam Censor Chains]]: When interacting with the Sisters to give them Color, they're completely naked save for binding chains that, [[WardrobeMalfunction for the most part]], obscures all of their [[UnusualEuphemism "fiddly bits"]]. These chains, which apparently restrict their power and free will, are made out of anything from smoke, fire, bright points of light, and in one case ''literal'' chain links made out of light. For the most part the appearance of each sister's chains fit in with their personality (for example, the aforementioned chain sprites appear on a Sister that is, fittingly, chained to a piece of torture equipment) Of course, every time you open up one of the Sisters' Hearts, some of the chains disappear until the Sister is "free", both in terms of being released from her binds and having nothing to hide her modesty anymore.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: There are seven colors in the game, each of which stand for and do separate things. The Sisters also desire you to feed them color, and the colors they desire tie into their personality.

* TheTease: All Sisters strip, stretch out or dance in front of you when you give them color. Some are not [[InnocentFanserviceGirl aware how hot they are]], but [[TheVamp some]] use it to make you give them more color. Ava even promises a reward.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Ritual glyph, usually. It's powerful, but takes a long time to set up, is expensive, and can easily miss your target. The area-of-effect shockwave is useful for taking out large groups of enemies, but during boss battles you're generally only fighting one target. (The exception is Caterpillar, who Ritual actually ''is'' useful on.)

* BonusBoss: Tyrant could be considered this -- though almost all of the Brothers are technically optional [[spoiler:with the exception of Montgolfier]], Tyrant is the one you're least likely to fight, since he doesn't [[spoiler:participate in the witch hunt]] and is the hardest to anger (as he has two Sisters, not one). He also isn't lying about being [[ThatOneBoss the strongest of the Brothers]].
* BossBanter: The Brothers will talk almost constantly, in the form of long prayers to Color. They have been transcripted [[http://forum.ice-pick.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=9267&start=25 here]] if you're interested.

** Adding on to this: Mantid seems relatively nice to the Spirit, willing to tolerate him and give him a chance. He is also quite [[TheStoic calm and composed]] compared to the other Brothers. However, all of the Sisters seem to hate him, making bitter remarks about him whenever he is brought up -- even moreso than the other Brothers. In addition, his Sister, Uta, is the most depressed and pessimistic of the Sisters. Despite putting on a kind face, Mantid appears to be quite the DomesticAbuser...

* TalkingToHimself: Due to the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, each actor plays two or three of the Brothers or Sisters. Due to the common use of filters, this usually isn't that noticeable, but unfortunately leads to problems in the Brothers' BossBanter. Each voice actor only recorded one set of it, usually with a particular Brother in mind. The same clip is used for all Brothers played by that voice actor, and it's ''very'' noticeable.

''Turgor (Тургор)'', also known as ''Tension'' or ''[[MarketBasedTitle The Void]]'' to English audiences, was originally released in April 2008 in Russia by indie developer Ice-Pick Lodge, known for their previous game ''{{Pathologic}}''. The game is something akin to a 3D Point and Click adventure game with some combat elements, using a system similar to ''{{Okami}}'', the player can "paint" the environment various colours to solve puzzles or attack enemies, attacks determined by the shape the player draws (an S for an area attack or an O for an explosion).
