Dexter Slices Open on Facebook
Ecko|Code and Showtime Networks today announced that the Dexter Slice of Life game is now available to play on Facebook. Based on the hit Showtime series Dexter®, Dexter Slice of Life combines progressive “real-time stealth” gameplay with the dark humor and suspense of the TV show. In a Facebook first, Dexter Slice of Life will introduce new game episodes the day after the airing throughout Season 6, which premiered yesterday evening. To check out the free-to-play title, please head online to http://apps.facebook.com/dextersliceoflife.
“Dexter Slice of Life shows how social play online is evolving – this is a deep transmedia experience that both gamers and fans of the show will love,” said Marc Fernandez, EVP of Development at Ecko|Code. “People can play anytime as Dexter or their own custom made ‘Dark Passenger.’ Dexter is a brilliant, complex show that asks as many questions as it answers, and this game is an extension of that.”
Developed internally at Ecko|Code, the “real-time stealth” gameplay in Dexter Slice of Life perfectly captures the precision and cautious nature of Dexter’s methodical stalking. This “asynchronous” multiplayer experience will allow players to control their “Dark Passenger” avatar to silence their friends’ sometimes evil in-game personas – even when they are not online – and become the vigilant watchman of the weak and downtrodden. Series star and executive producer Michael C. Hall has provided voiceover work, and has been personally involved in development of the game to guarantee its authenticity.
“Dexter Slice of Life provides a tremendous opportunity for a Showtime property to find a new audience, connect with our current dedicated fan base and extend the brand into bold new mediums,” said Laura Palmer, Senior Vice President, Distributor Marketing, Showtime Networks Inc. “Ecko|Code has crafted a fascinating, fun game and we look forward to watching our fans interact with it!”
