This is from the same people who made Miner Wars, right? It was an interesting concept which ended up as a disappointing arcade shooter, if this is more sandbox-y I might be interested.

It is from the same developer. This style of game fits their destruction/deformation engine a lot better, and right now it is very sandboxy, unlike the distressingly linear nature of Miner Wars. The developer is planning on adding a "survival" mode where you get limited resources and have to defend against asteroids (I think) in single player or another team (I think) in multiplayer. Again, still in development so details are scarce.

In the demo they showed a month ago, ships would crash into asteroids, and the asteroids wouldn't budge, even if they were smaller than the ship crashing into it. It was like paper airplanes crashing into a brick. Has that aspect improved?

Right now, asteroids do not respond to being run into. However, in Miner Wars, you could mine into asteroids and permanently destroy them, so this might be a feature that is enabled later on.
