What is an IGZ file?
An IGZ file is a 3D model, skeleton, texture, or other asset used in an Intrinsic Alchemy Engine video game. In most cases, it contains a character or item that appears in a game, or it contains a texture to be applied to a character or item. IGZ files are most notably used in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, a game published by Activision in 2017.
Intrinsic Alchemy Engine is a 3D game development platform that was created by Intrinsic Graphics and is now owned by Activision. In the late 2010s, games produced using the Intrinsic Alchemy Engine, including Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and Skylanders Imaginators, began using IGZ-based game assets. IGZ files are stored within .PAK files.
NOTE: Some IGZ files contain in-game audio. You can play the audio contained within these files by renaming them to use the .WAV extension.
How to open an IGZ file
