Files that contain the .bik file extension are associated with a variety of computer gaming applications. The games that have the .bik file extension are programs that have been created by Bink and Smacker.
Bink is a codec that is used to compress video files at up to three times the playback speed of a DVD. This allows games that use the BIK file format to use less memory than other types of video game codecs.
The data in the BIK file is usually a video that is played during a user's gameplay experience. For example, when a video game cuts to a video sequence, that video sequence can be stored in the BIK file format to make the file size of the gaming application more manageable.
