Godseeker Mode is a game mode in Hollow Knight that is unlocked after completing the first three Pantheons in Godhome: the Pantheon of the Master, the Pantheon of the Artist, and the Pantheon of the Sage. Even though it is unlocked after these Pantheons, it canonically occurs after the events of the Pantheon of Hallownest.[1]

This game mode starts out and takes place entirely in Godhome. There is no way to exit the area.
