If you want to figure out the costs for your project, you need to work out your personnel needs. Also are there any software/middleware/engine costs, or equipment costs.

Figure out your personnel and other costs. Nobody can do that except you.

It's not my project. Im trying to figure out what to charge for a story script for such a game because i got a request to externally work out such. So i want to write an offer and im looking for a proper price.

Then why didn't you just ask that??

You have to figure out what to charge based on numerous criteria:
1. How many hours you'll be working
2. How much your time is worth (which is a function of your experience level)
3. How much the client can afford
4. How much your competition (other writers) will ask for
5. How badly you want to get this project (which is a function of how much stuff you have in your resume)

You have to ask for enough to cover your needs but not so much that they'll hire somebody else to do it.
