IF there was no way to rewind to the beginning I would say it's a designer choice with which we just have to live with.
But when you actually CAN rewind, but it takes forever - then this designer choice is absolutely terrible and it sucks out all the fun from the game. I stopped playing after 30 minutes, but I did some digging.
I found this on Steam forums, thought I would share (all the praise should go to UnluckyNinja ):
"I directly modified the original c# assembly.
Here is the code I added to the dll: Cnve0qJe (on pastebin.com, I cannot put full links here...)
Hotkeys (mentioned above) check and playback manipulation are added in UpdateInput method of FullScreenPlayback
As well as increasing max speed for mouse drag to 10x orginal, however it doesn't seem to work.
If you still prefer a more secure choice, I used dnSpy to modified the code.
You can look up the class I metioned in the dll, and recompiled it yourself."
The updated file published in the Steam thread worked only for Steam version unfortunately, but I've used the above to modify the file manualy and it worked :)
Left Arrow: Rewind for 2s
Right Arrow: Fast Forward for 2s

You can download the file here: 7eMlWlx2 (on ge.tt)
Put it in c:\[game folder]\TellingLies_Data\Managed\.
Remember to backup, just in case :)
Hello, can you upload it to another file host site? I can't download it from that one
