I love me some Dexter. It's easily one of the best shows on television and one of my personal favorites (right up there with Supernatural). So, when news that the series (which follows the life of forensic specialist Dexter Morgan–who happens to be a serial killer who kills other serial killers) was getting a videogame adaptation broke awhile back, I was nervous.
Games based on movies and TV shows tend to suck. I'd hate for a Dexter game to join the long list of failed videogame adaptations.
Anyway, here's the first look at the forthcoming game from Icarus Studios (which will appear on the PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, and the iPhone). I'm hoping this is iPhone footage because the graphics are pretty rough.

A film critic by trade, specializing in Euro-horror, cult exploitation, and Asian action cinema, Mike has written reviews for a diverse group of print and online publications. He covers horror news, movies, books, and games at TheHorrorGeek.com and Horrorsquad.com and spent two seasons as The Horror Geek on Comedy Central's pop-culture game show, Beat the Geeks.
Mike's childhood was spent playing videogames any time he got a chance. His parents had a Pong console and his grandmother had an Atari 2600, where Mike cultivated his skills by playing hour upon hour of games like Space Invaders, Berserk, and Asteroids. From those early experiences Mike learned one thing: he loved games.
In 1999, Mike became a staff reviewer at Cinescape Magazine's website where he spent a year learning the craft of game criticism. After internal changes led to Mike leaving Cinescape in late 2000, he joined up with RPGFan in 2001 and spent several years writing reviews for them. Happy, but looking for an opportunity to expound on a wider variety of titles, Mike joined GameCritics.com and hopes to help Chi, Dale, and the rest of the GC staff bring a higher level of respect to the field of game criticism.
