This is where messages are hidden within songs (usually on vinyl), which when reversed, will reveal themselves. Well, could the same occur for computer code? Computer games? Let’s try loading some code backwards and see if anything reveals itself. Then maybe, try some more realistic ways of finding some hidden computer code, in a fashion similar to backmasking.
