Trivia

The Thugs, which are the bad guys of the game, were a sect that worshiped the goddess Kali, sacrificing people to her. The sect's origin is of the 13-th century, but it became famous mostly during the time of the British colonization, in 19-th century. Both Moslems and Hindus belonged to the members of the sect. "Road to India" follows a popular tradition of picturing this dark and demonic cult - the most famous example is probably the movie "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".
