HTC VIVE and Fit Reality are proud to be working together to bring you the #MOVEMORE Challenge – an innovative, adrenaline-pumping VR fitness tournament based on the upcoming title VIRO MOVE, which combines exciting VR gameplay, a real-life workout, and a strategic fitness challenge.
“VIRO MOVE was built by gamers who felt they didn’t move enough. #MOVEMORE is a simple but powerful message to all people whose lives can be better by adding some daily physical activity. We are proud and honored to have HTC VIVE support the message, and we invite the VR community to help us kick-start the movement,” says Paul Lynch from Fit Reality.

1. #MOVEMORE Tutorial Mode:
The tutorial is designed to help players master the mechanics of the game and is always available for players to access during the challenge.
2. #MOVEMORE Free Play Mode:
Players can practice Easy and Medium levels across all fighting styles a maximum of twenty times (twenty play credits). Once the twenty Free Play credits have been used up, Free Play mode will lock, and players will only have access to the Tutorial and Challenge modes.
3. #MOVEMORE Challenge mode:
Players have a maximum of twelve credits (they can play twelve times) to obtain the highest score in each fighting style within Challenge mode.
Four fighting styles will be available in the challenge:
- Sword play
- Mixed weapons
1. Using Credits
Competitors can use all of their credits in one sitting, or they may wish to strategically play game-by-game and see how the leaderboards evolve across the duration of the challenge.
Unused credits will be lost on the last day of the tournament.
2. Challenge scoring
Players with the highest in-game score for each fighting style will be awarded a total of 100 tournament points.
Every other participant will be awarded tournament points according to their score as a percentage of the highest score of each fighting style.
- A leader in Swordplay who earns 4519 in-game points will be awarded 100 tournament points.
- A player in second place who earns 3204 in-game points will be awarded 70.9 tournament points (3204 divided by the high score of 4519 and then multiplied by 100).
- And so on…
Challenge leaderboards and scores will update instantly. Each fighting style will have its own leaderboard.
The tournament leaderboard score will be the combined total of points from all four fighting styles.
THE CHALLENGE BUILD
Four environments will be activated for the tournament (Fishing Pier, Stonehenge, Roman Ruins, Glass Bridge) – one per fighting style.
2. FIGHTING SKINS
Four fighting skins will be activated for the tournament – one per fighting style.
Four songs from our soundtrack will be activated for each game – one per fighting style. The games and songs in Challenge mode will not be the same as those in Free Play mode.
