Showtime's hit series Dexter, one of my pal Buzz's new faves, not only has been hanging out (with a little less blood) on CBS lately, but also has its own web series on YouTube dubbed Dexter: The Dark Defender. And soon you'll be seeing Dexter hitting the shelves, not only as each season's boxed set, but as a video game to boot.
Entering into a production agreement with Marc Ecko Entertainment, Showtime announced yesterday that it will be bringing the award winning (and totally awesome) series to your gaming console. To learn more about this video game,
Marc Fernandez, VP of Marc Ecko Entertainment seems pretty stoked at the chance to translate the show into a game:
"Dexter is the extremely rare TV show with enough layers of action and tension to translate perfectly into a compelling video game. Our game designers, writers, and artists are going to give Dexter’s morally complex world the kind of interactivity that gamers will love."
Although no specifics were announced as to which consoles it will be available for, or even a target release date, I'm betting a game about a serial killer hunting other serial killers will be a hit, just like the show!
