Mark Ecko Entertainment has secured the rights to create a game based on the Emmy and Golden Globe winning TV show Dexter.

MEE and Showtime Networks have said they are currently in negotiations with "a handful of developers" to create the game, with the title currently in pre-production.

âDexter is the extremely rare TV show with enough layers of action and tension to translate perfectly into a compelling videogame,â commented Marc Fernandez, VP of Marc Ecko Entertainment.

"Our game designers, writers, and artists are going to give Dexterâs morally complex world the kind of interactivity that gamers will love."

Mark Ecko Entertainment worked on the production of Atari's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, and is also working with Human Head on an untitled project.
