Ground Control is a cooperative virtual reality puzzle game focusing on communication, teamwork, and problem-solving. This experience features two players working together to blast off with an enemy spacecraft, learning how to operate it as they go. The Pilot, wearing a VR headset, has full access to a panel with a litany of buttons, switches, and other alien technology. In contrast, the Navigator has no such engagement with the controls, but has a booklet of instructions to operate the ship. The Pilot must relay to the Navigator what they can see on the controls, and the Navigator must scan through their instructions to find the correct startup sequence for the shuttle.
