Showtime is gearing up for the sixth season of its hit show, “Dexter,” starring Michael C. Hall. And for the second consecutive Comic-Con, “Dexter” is getting a new video game. This year, the world’s favorite serial killer is going social. Marc Ecko Entertainment has created Dexter Slice of Life, a brand new Facebook game that will launch in tandem with the first episode of Season 6 this September. Showtime is debuting the new video game at a Comic-Con 2011 party at Wired Cafe on July 21.
Dexter Slice of Life will be the first Facebook game to introduce real-time stealth gameplay, allowing social gamers to stalk their victims and satisfy the dark passenger. The game allows players to step into the role of a virtual Dexter Morgan and follow along the Season 6 narrative every Sunday. The new series will introduce actors Edward James Olmos , Colin Hanks , and Mos as central characters. Gameplay involves exploring Miami and locations seen on the series to complete missions and find evidence. Players can collect and earn special items to help you progress in the game and complete missions. One of the key themes of the new season is Dexter Morgan finding spirituality, which will also play into the new game.
This is the second “Dexter” video game from Marc Ecko Entertainment, but it’s the company’s first title in the burgeoning social games space.
