Oh God the Rapture Is Burning

You can survive the zombies, but you can't survive the apocalypse.

Dateline: Alternate history of Earth, Harold Camping’s 2011 "Rapture" prediction comes horribly true. From May 21st until October 21st, the sky turns red and portals open up sporadically on Earth to a surreal universe referred to as Xanadu. Cats become spidercats, ducks grow in size, the undead rise as everyone expected, and a creature roams who is best described simply as a "Cockroach Jesus."

One sixteen-year-old boy keeps a daily journal of these hellish five months. As he tries to survive the apocalypse, he meets up with his friends and encounters eldritch creatures that might have been here all along. But when a blind man spreads word of an apocalyptic prophecy, is it really best to follow it, or are the eldritch as blind as the prophet? (Currently on fourth and final act)
