      Wikipedia lists a few. IIRC, there's also a movie in the early stages of production about it.
      >The United States Navy released a cryptographic challenge based on the Cicada 3301 recruitment puzzles in 2014 calling it Project Architeuthis.
      >The plot of "Nautilus", a 2014 episode of Person of Interest, featured a large-scale game very similar to the Cicada 3301 puzzles. Both feature a series of worldwide cryptographic puzzles, but as the title implies, these feature the image of a nautilus shell instead of a cicada logo. Person of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan and producer Greg Plageman stated in an interview that Cicada 3301 was the inspiration for the episode: "Episode 2, I'm particularly fascinated by the subject underneath it. Look up Cicada 3301 on the internet. It's a very interesting concept out there that we then put into a larger story that connects to our show."
      >The organization is the subject of the 2021 comedy-thriller film Dark Web: Cicada 3301. Directed by Alan Ritchson, who co-wrote the script with Joshua Montcalm, it stars Jack Kesy, Conor Leslie, Ron Funches, Kris Holden-Ried, Andreas Apergis, and Ritchson. The film follows a hacker who participates in Cicada's recruitment game while evading the NSA.
      >In the video game Assassin's Creed Origins, a member of the Isu civilisation references Cicada when listing off various mysteries of history.
      >The Cicada 3301 puzzles play a major role in the Visual Novel Anonymous;Code.

        Wait, it amounted to nothing? What was the end result?

          Year 1 ended with just a dozen people circlejerking on a darknet forum and starting projects they all gave up.
          Year 2 ended with people filling forms to join the same forum but never getting any reply.
          Year 3 has never been solved.

        >Our experts in creating viral sensations are the world's best. Our Cicada 3301 project generated hundreds of millions of dollars in free publicity. Think how much buzz we can generate for you!
        And you'll still not get this because you want there to be a candy bar at the end of the path being advertised rather than understanding that it was a demonstration of skill to a narrow audience. You're not who they wanted to impress, you're only useful in that you will talk about Cicada 3301, furthering the strength of their viral production.
        You inability to even reach second order thinking is why you'll always be a nobody confused by a world you can never see beyond the surface.

      from what i understood it was some sort of recruitment campaign for people wanting to make software to "help the world", i dont know the details but it didn't lead to anything actually big

        this was confirmed (valid pgp found)

        Wait, it amounted to nothing? What was the end result?

        liber primus is still unsolved - its probably an autokey of some sort; page 40 likely begins with "FOR EVERY" so we may be able to crib it

    creepypasta/weird cryptic webpages are kino as hell
    they're all just some college student's projects done out of boredom but thats what makes it so good
    theres no dumb goals or hidden motives, usually not a money making scheme, its just done for pure fun, and its fun to see how much shit you can find while drunk in the middle of the night
