You can decompress EGG files using ALZip and Bandizip in Windows. You can also use UnEgg in Linux.

The EGG format incorporates intelligent compression techniques for creating smaller file sizes. It also supports Unicode and therefore is useful for multi-lingual archives.

ALZip is a simple compression tool for Windows that is especially popular in Korea. It has two proprietary formats: the EGG format, which was released in version 8 and the .ALZ format, which is similar to the Zip format. The program can also compress and decompress files into other formats, such as .TAR and .ZIP.
