Generally speaking .bin is a generic extension used for thousands of file formats across computing with nothing in particular linking them up, indeed I can well imagine you have dozens of examples of different formats using the extension .bin right there. It could also be that the devs renamed existing files .bin so it might be that one or more of them is a known format but you are going to have to look at them and see.
It might be that you can extract one or more of those further but .bin itself, even the names and directory names and file sizes, are not that helpful.

Time to have fun with a hex editor.

When all is said and done nobody knows much of anything about what hex editors show. They merely show the contents of a file and with some other knowledge that may help you figure out what they do. Hex editors are not magic tools and hex editing is not a magic technique, such things are in fact very crude but it is a good place to start in these sorts of situations.

On corruption this is why we work on copies and have backups of work done and things like saves. Also it is not a fast method but if you corrupt something in the resulting game and know what you have changed then you now know what that file/section is responsible for.
