One player is responsible for pressing the buttons and turning the dials. The other players - using the information in the space ship manual - instruct the player on what to do.
Nominal is a couch co-op light-sim space game that puts you in the merciless cockpit of an alternate-history 1960's spacecraft. Your friends take on the roll of Mission Control. Unfortunately for you (the pilot), the Odyssey is a spacecraft built from bargain-bin parts, and it's unlikely the mission will be completed without any issues.
In the (inevitable) event of a failure, Mission Control holds the Odyssey spacecraft's Ship Operator's Manual, which details each of the ship's core and sub-systems, how they're wired up, and how to troubleshoot any potential problem. The pilot and Mission Control must work together in the face of certain death to ensure the Odyssey returns to a NOMINAL state before time runs out and the mission, and possibly your life, is forfeit.
