The Sadhaba, or traders, of ancient Odisha were intrepid seafarers who embarked on perilous journeys across the vast oceans, navigating their distinctive boats known as boitas. These seafaring merchants played a crucial role in fostering trade and cultural exchange between ancient Odisha and various parts of the world. With their sturdy vessels, the Sadhabas ventured into distant lands, establishing trade routes that connected the coastal regions of Odisha with Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

The boitas, traditional wooden boats crafted with meticulous skill, served as the lifeline for these traders, enabling them to transport goods such as spices, textiles, and precious metals. Despite facing the challenges of unpredictable seas and treacherous weather, the Sadbavas braved these obstacles, contributing to the flourishing maritime trade of ancient Odisha.

In the game, Boitas, you take on the role of such Sadhaba and use the Boitas to travel to far away places in order to trade and gain luxurious goods, and bring prosperity to yourself and the kingdom.
