In 2009, Mike Ambrogi along with his brother Tim and Hal Larsson meticulously plotted their move from the West Coast to Philadelphia. Now, they’ll be heading back as a featured independent developer at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, the largest consumer video game expo in North America.

The bootstrapped Center City-based game developer’s first title, Jamestown, was selected from over 100 entries as a member of the “PAX 10.”  The PAX 10 awards independent developers with free booth space, free entry and a moment in the spotlight at one of the most popular video came conferences in the country.

On the company’s blog:

I think I speak for the entire team here at Final Form Games when I say: ZOMGPAX10BBQ!!!11!

I could spend some time writing about the emotional rollercoaster of getting to this moment. Fact is, I want to. I think it’s a pretty good story.

The announcement received nods in Joystiq and WIRED. The game is now available through Steam for $10.
