An informal faux-monospacef semi-serif

My yet-to-be-named typeface has changed a lot since I posted my first drafts here, so I decided to star another topic.

I dropped most of the serifs, and left only those of them which enhance readability. The idea behind that was to "trap" each glyph in some sort of rectangular box and thus separate it from the rest in order for it to be processed more easily.
I also made the widths of the glyphs close to equal, to enhance this effect.

Right now I am on a quest of making it render properly in small sizes (not much success, so far):



I also plan to add cyrillic support(this is the first draft):

You should modulate the "strokes" that result in heavy clotting, like in the я. Unless you like that look.

Something like this?

Yeah, I think that might be about right, for the "z".
