The quick restart mod adds a button to the pause menu that allows you to start a new run with the current character, difficulty, and artifacts.

This was tested and working on at least these builds:




  • Add config option to enable pressing a button to restart, changing the keybind, and how long it needs to be held
  • Add config option to put the button wherever you want on the pause menu
  • Add config option to enable a confirmation dialog upon trying to restart


  • Moved button to the bottom after complaints (even from the developer) of accidentally hitting restart instead of resume


  • Fix incompatability with PhotoMode mod (and possibly others)


  • Fix incompatability with StartingItemsGUI mod
  • Remove button in multiplayer, since it's broken there


  • Add code to github


  • Change start game code to do the same thing as the "pregame_start_run" console command
  • Fix button placement position in different resolutions
  • Clean up potential console errors that could clutter output


  • Fix README formatting


  • Initial version
