I started the Computer Savvy challenge and, a few rooms into the run, I noticed a pretty weird icon:

What does it mean?

  • Which icon are you talking about in the image? – GnomeSlice Nov 4 '14 at 22:04
  • FWIW I saw that icon when I was trying the Pitch Black challenge. – shanodin Nov 4 '14 at 22:07
  • @DwarfSlice The one below the key count. – badp Nov 4 '14 at 22:15
  • 3
    -1 for no free-hand circle. – 5pike Nov 5 '14 at 8:12
  • I never unlocked items or achievements (for example, completing the caves without taking damage) when playing the challenges. I believe this icon is a visual indication that these are disabled in the current run. – Lyrical Nov 5 '14 at 14:17

That icon means that the run won't count for achievements and item unlocks. The same icon is present in any run where you put in the seed manually: that's because some seeds/challenges give you an advantage in terms of drops, item combinations and treasure rooms, while normally the runs are completely randomized.
