Showtime TV drama to get game treatment

Mark Ecko Entertainment, the development studio set up by fashion designer Mark Ecko, is to partner with US TV network Showtime for a game based on the hit drama Dexter.

The company outsources the development of its title to other studios; its previous title Mark Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure was developed in association with The Collective and the company is currently working with Human Head on an unannounced title. It is currently discussing the Dexter project with several studios.

“Dexter is the extremely rare TV show with enough layers of action and tension to translate perfectly into a compelling videogame,” said Marc Fernandez, vice president of Marc Ecko Entertainment.

“Our game designers, writers, and artists are going to give Dexter’s morally complex world the kind of interactivity that gamers will love.”
