Docking Denied is a spacecraft building sandbox game, heavily inspired by Celestial Command. Your job is to build and command a small spaceship. Using this ship (and your superior knowledge of realistic orbital maneuvering) you can fly between stations, accept quests and trade materials to upgrade your creation.

This project is part of a bachelor thesis about quest design. Therefore, its purpose is to collect quest data (opt-in) and player feedback.
