A Discovery Channel "experiment" reality TV deal, where a number of volunteers are put into a post WW3, or a post-global pandemic environment. Wherein they need to live, create, co-habitate.
A Cormac McCarthy book. First off, I LOOOOVE Cormac, but regardless, this is a story of a father and son who trek through a burned America in search of the coast and hopefully a functioning civilization.
A video game, roughly a First Person Shooter RPG, wherein your created character awakes in a fallout shelter and ventures out into the world to find a (once again) burned and desolate wasteland full of mutants, backwater civilizations, and conflict.
So... I dunno... if you have any other resources send them my way, if anything, I think my little story could be a good "have faith while questioning how God can let something terrible happen" kinda thing. Or not, or maybe my whim will pass. We shall see...
