While I was testing my new hold (in game, not playtesting), I accidentally clicked on the New Game option instead of the Continue Game. I was angry, because now I had to play the level all over again.

Just to rephrase, I suggest adding a Yes/No question for the New Game button on the main screen. Why? It's right next to Continue Game button, which makes it easy to miss-click and start the game all over again on just a simple accident.

You can also disable this in the Player Settings.

I agree, this has happened to me many times and it is extremely irritating.

Either that or make the Continue save become a new permanent save upon starting a new game.

Edit: By permanent of course I mean like regular saves, you can delete it but it won't delete itself.

It's definitely frustrating that the game Autosaves the Continue save when you start a New Game! If you're still too used to regular DROD, you probably don't remember to save often, and you'll also be quite irritated when you try Restore; it's exactly the same as loading a save with F3.

I second this. Just a simple Yes-No dialog would be great.
