It’s official. Showtime Digital Media along with Modernista have unveiled an alternate reality game for Dexter fans leading to the season five premiere of the series. Dex fans first discovered the game while playing the Showtime-sponsored Dexter Game On at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.

The game is comprised of two main sites (sleepsuperbly.com and serialhuntress.com), a weekly digest and numerous microsites.

The action is going down across the web and on mobile, leading up to the season premiere of Dexter on Sunday, September 26 at 9 p.m. It’s a pretty nifty interactive campaign, especially for those who were at Comic-Con and got to visit a crime scene littered with mysterious clues that led them to “The Serial Huntress,” a fictional ex-FBI agent by the name of Dee Pratt. The Serial Huntress uses crowdsourcing techniques (via her aforementioned website) as tools to hunt and take down serial killers.

Aside from this game, “Dexter-Game On,” required players to reach 100,000 kills and uploaded cheek slash photos to unlock a clip of season 5 which can all be viewed on the site.
