Opening GAM files

Did your computer fail to open a GAM file? We explain what GAM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your GAM files.

What is a GAM file?

Files that contain the .gam file extension are most commonly associated with saved game files that are used by a variety of different computer gaming applications. These files allow a user to save the progression of his or her gameplay, eliminating the need to restart the game from the beginning every time he or she stops and then restarts the game.

Popular software games that use the .gam file extension include Baldur's Gate, Dark Engine, TADS and Vectrex.

The Astro-PC software application has also been known to use the .gam file suffix. These GAM files contain astrology data files that are referenced by the Astro-PC software.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
