Well you've answered it already. You don't like web dev, you want to work in game dev, and you need more money to put bread on the table.
Keep working where you're at, look for greener pastures, and if you find one that'll let you in, go for it.
You should be working as a game developer because that's what you love, I presume. So... Leave! And pursuit a better job at what you like and are good at. I'm sure there's always freelance work out there to help pay the bills while you struggle to get your ideal job.
Best of luck.
@ChaoticGoods Well if you're planning on leaving they definitely won't.
Suggest the idea of working part time to your manager if you want, you might get somewhere with that, but it won't give you enough money to live if you're having issues with that full-time.
It's straight up a choice between getting better pay and doing what you want V.S. sticking around somewhere you don't want to be and hoping for a pay rise imo.
