Hi all, we've temporarily run out of Dishonored keys due to immense popularity of our deal. We're working to get more but no ETA. -Love GMG

I'm hoping these sales might help towards a sequel. And good for GMG getting the traffic.

GMG must be making a fortune off of Steam. All they do is pump out keys while Steam has all the downloading.
BUT they also have near continual massive sales which cuts deeply into their profit. They must be making some money, but I doubt its terribly much. Selling $50-$60 presales games at $35 or so, they can't be making much.
They'd probably be better off running those 20%-30% coupons once a month instead of almost every day.

I imagine that they rely on bulk sales to make up for the losses. If they weren't making a decent profit, I seriously doubt they'd offer such significant discounts on a regular basis.
