It's an archive file similar to a .zip file. I would strongly recommend downloading and installing this, as it is compatible with tons of different archive types, including its own .7z file type.

http://www.7-zip.org/

Edit: also, could you post a link to where you found that game? Thanks!! :D

Some people talk because they have something to say. Others talk because they have to say something.
