If you haven't already guessed, Captive Palm is a romance title. The game has you on the hunt for clues to a crime, and you get them by spying on a prisoner with amnesia.

Your job is to fight through Haruto's amnesia and help him recover his memories of the crime. You can only interact with Haruto via a glass divider in prison, and you'll eventually place your hand on the screen to "connect" with Haruto.
Other portions of the game having you moving around the island, questioning locals, finding clues, and picking up items to give to Haruto. Haruto will also send text messages and leave voicemails.
