True but I'm not sure how working on a backend for an MMORPG for example would be any different from regular backends I'm already working on. I mean, would that even be considered game development?

Aircrafts have software. Are the programmers who write said software considered pilots? No. (stupid example to illustrate my point)

this was just an idea for a smooth transition...

Another way, depending on your background would be to look at Unity 3D and its ecosystem: creating assets store, learning from the community and leveraging c# or JavaScript (looks like UnityScript)...
