Challenge Mode is a driving event that includes various challenges to make the game harder, but may make it easier. The event allows you to choose whether or not you want to accept the challenge. So choosing one will not force you to do the challenge. 

Note* there is no reward for beating the game with a challenge*

Trivia

  •  All gnomes throughout the game have a name that corresponds with their occupation. For example, Tnomey's name starts with T (likely standing for trading or trader).
  • The items you gain after accepting the challenge (not the morale penalty) will have different text styles depending on their rarity and quality. Most weapons have blue text, however the Claymore, Halberd and Minigun have flashing text.  
  • The Max Morale Penalty challenge sets all characters' morale bonus to -3 instead of decreasing it by 3. This means that special characters with different max Morale (Mason, Octodad, Clown, etc.) will still have it set to 3, regardless of what it originally was. In one case, this actually causes the character's max Morale to increase instead of decreasing.
