Display Pixel Blackletter

Hi typophiles,

I am re-designing an old font of mine. And I need your help at this point!
Indeed, I've been re-thinking the letterspacings and all seems to me in a mess now…!
The typeface is a display one, only for fun : mixing pixel 80's-style and Textura Blackletter, a weird thing! :)
In the first version of the letterspacings, I made it to be legible but now, I find it interesting to use it more in a tight letterspacing, in a way to be more alike with a revival of the historic calligraphic form. But of course, it is less legible, if it's not to say almost "not-legible", like the old Bibles though…
Want do you think of it? Do you have any advice?
Thank you in advance for your return!
