Does this mean I will get to play it today since I purchased it on a Monday?
No King. The post you're replying to, posted in 2014, was about the prototype version of the game. That is no longer available, and now there is a pre-order in effect for a version labeled as early access. That will become available Feb. 12, 2015, as far as we know. I don't work for Mohawk, so I'm assuming the posted countdown clock is correct.
