WADED is a DOS line-based level editor written by Matthew Ayres. It was one of the first line-based level editors. One of the other good features of WADED is that all things placed on the map are given an icon. WADED was also one of the first editors to support Heretic. WADED was programmed using QuickBASIC v4.5.

It was Matthias Worch's first level editor [1]. You can see him editing it here [2] at 6:45 into the movie.
