Dexter: Slice of Life Social Game Goes Live on Facebook from Ecko
The new Dexter: Slice of Life social game has just been released in Beta from Ecko|Code and Showtime. Dexter Season 6 premiered this weekend. The game functions as a transmedia experience for Dexter fans to interact with the show after each episode.
Ecko|Code has been working with Showtime for the past few years developing both iPhone and iPad games for the series. The company released its first social game with Showtime earlier called Weeds Social Club, which spotlighted the Botwin family’s illicit activities. The Weeds Social Club allowed gamers to build up a weed growing and dealing business like a Farmville for potheads.
“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.”
“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!”
