Game: https://store.steampowered.com/app/878330/Whip_Whip/

Archive: http://biancagames.com/whipwhip.gea (uploaded by me)

This is a type of file I've never seen before and google returns no info. Can I please have help extracting it? ♥

I suspect it's obfuscated since the "GEA_" magic and the first 16 bytes of the header are the only readable thing.

Thank you for the response! Pardon me though, but what does this mean? Does this mean it can't be extracted no matter how hard we try? Or is there a way?
Pardon my ignorance. :)

Also, what did you mean by "magic"?

Magic is a term used for a sort of "signature" in a file format, a sequence of bytes that is fixed in all the files of the same format.

Basically what I meant is that only the first 16 bytes are visible and therefore it's not possible to extract the data from that file.
The only way is finding someone who wants to debug the game.
