I had to google it lol. According to wikipedia…
"Asperger syndrome (also called Asperger’s syndrome, Asperger’s disorder, Asperger’s or AS) is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and people with AS therefore show significant difficulties in social interaction and restricted, stereotyped patterns of behavior and interests."
To be honest that probably describes a lot of people working in the games industry haha. I’d be more worried about your condition coupled with your username; hope its not your website URL! haha
I would definitely mention it if they give you a health related form to fill out, but not till then.

That would set you up perfectly for being a coder.
> Or that Im On Prozac And Ritalin?
Hmmm… that would put you in line for more of a producer role.

Definitely producer material :)

The questions you are asking really cannot be properly answered on an internet forum.
The people here wouldn’t be qualified to give you answers. The questions you are asking are very medical, and very personal. And so you should speak to a medical professional, and in person. Even if the people here knew the details, they wouldn’t be qualified to advise you.
Many people do experience conditions like you mention, and still manage to do what they want to do. I think it depends on a lot of different things. I’ve heard people say that some very successful people, especially in sciences, have forms of aspergers, but I really don’t know enough to comment.
Your doctor should actually be better able to answer questions about future employment than the people here could.
I reckon your doctor might genuinely be the best person to talk to about things like this.
