The beauty is in what you will discover.

  • Controls: Keyboard only (or Steam controller!)
  • Navigator: WASD + Left CTRL
  • Gunner: Right CTRL + Left + Right arrow keys
  • Requires mouse to click menu buttons.

Two-Player Co-op Two Ways!   It cannot be overly stressed about how nifty this feature is.

Local co-op can be achieved by sharing the hot-seat: one person is the navigator (left side of keyboard), the other is the gunner (right side of keyboard) in the same ship.

Additionally, read the README file to learn about the “true” Two Player option that allows you to map a controller to control the Astronaut in a one-of-a-kind second player tethered experience on a shared screen (local hot seat / co-op).
