What is an EPK file?

An EPK file is an asset package or world backup used by Eaglercraft, a fan-made version of Minecraft that can be played in a web browser. It contains textures, sounds, and other game assets, or it contains a backup of a user-created world. Eaglercraft's asset EPK file is named assets.epk.
