  • This item is significantly useful for both score and time-related daily runs.

Meaning — you don't have to do the final floor and save up a lot of time.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! The new floor is improperly seeded. This results in a high chance for rooms to repeat from the previous floor. This is most noticeable when looping via the error room. This bug is due to ForgetStageSeed using the same xorshift constants as the level generator.
