What is a BRANCH file?

An BRANCH file is a project file created by Branch, a modified version of MIT Scratch 1.4. It contains a Scratch 1.4 program, which likely includes custom blocks available only in Branch. BRANCH files can be opened only in Branch; they cannot be opened in the default version of Scratch 1.4.

MIT Scratch is a block-based development environment used primarily to teach children how to code. Various Scratch enthusiasts have created many variations of Scratch, which include additional features and programming blocks.

Branch is a Scratch 1.4 variant that contains 61 additional programming blocks. While Branch is now mostly defunct, developers can still download and use it to create Scratch programs. Development projects created by Branch are saved as .SB.BRANCH files, to denote they were created by Branch, and not the default version of Scratch 1.4. (The default version of Scratch 1.4 saves development projects as .SB files.)
