Were are all the 3D indie games?

Maybe its just me, but it seems as though a lot of indie games are 2D. The reason 2D is mostly chosen over 3D is because 2D games are much easier and faster to produce. For most of us indie developers, we don't have time to do all the math and physics required for a 3D application.

However, my upcoming game, Canine Combat will be in 3D. Yes, yes, 3D takes more work, but I figure that it will help it stand out (no pun intended). Besides, some games just can't be done well in 2D, like racing games.

I might go back to 2D games after Canine Combat is finished... But we'll have to see.
