Westwood Shadows is at its core a first-person, puzzle-solving game, with survival and psychological horror. Solve increasingly difficult puzzles, survive deadly shadow-beings and follow Peter as he confronts his past.
The story of Westwood Shadows is told through a combination of clues, animated cutscenes, and details in the surrounding environment, including immersive 3D sound and RGB lighting setup - based on game events and mechanics - for the owners of Chroma RGB products by Razer. RedSoup wants to deliver a stream-of-consciousness experience of madness, conspiracy, and grief with original music and performances.

The core Westwood Shadows team started with two developers, expanded to five, and hopes to grow further with help from the Kickstarter campaign. RedSoup Studio was founded when a passion project from previously amateur developers grew into a proof-of-concept alpha in 2019. After positive reception, the team grew. Now based in Cyprus, the codebase has been built from the ground up in 2020 and the story expanded for a feature-length game. By September 2021, the team felt ready and released Westwood Shadows: Prologue with the first part of the story of Westwood Shadows.
