What is a KWN file?

A KWN file is an archive used in an Étranges Libellules video game, such as Asterix & Obelix XXL. It contains the assets (models, animations, textures, and sounds) used in a specific game level.

More Information

Étranges Libellules was a French video game developer that released a handful of games, including Asterix & Obelix XXL, Asterix at the Olympic Games, and How to Train Your Dragon. To develop their games, Étranges Libellules used a game development engine called the K engine.

Games developed using the K engine store each level's assets in a level-specific KWN archive. If an asset is used across multiple levels, a copy of that asset is stored in each level's KWN file.
