Recently, an ancient tomb of unknown origin was discovered during the deep-earth mining operations of 2035. Inside, there was a mysterious metallic box with engravings on each face, as well as a large carving on the back wall using what appears to be the same symbols.
Whatever the box is, tests have shown it to be impervious to all attempts to open it, scan it, or otherwise determine it's purpose or origin. As such, the task instead fell on the hands of those adept at deciphering unknown messages, which is where you all come in.
Using the shown images of the faces of the cube and wall carving, work out how to open the box.
Clues will be provided daily to try and nudge people in the right direction, unless that would make it too obvious.
Preferably discuss theories on what you think it could be, along with information you discover and any links to existing media you find (in general, not SE specific). I would very much like to read over how you dissect it.
I also suck at art stuff, so the images will in fact be a black-and-white pixel-art image for each face and the wall carving.
Some glyphs are used for more than one thing
Glyphs do not lose their meaning if taken away from the others
Maybe the ones who wrote the message also have dogs that lie around all day?
No hint today (#4), first 3 should allow you to decode the messages fully.
The name is an important entity in a video game which shares these glyphs
